In this course students will study key works of modern theater by Henrik Ibsen, August Strindberg and Anton Chekhov, They will have the opportunity to explore these texts not only through reading and discussion, but most importantly, through the hands-on rehearsal process. Throughout the term we will be looking at the impact of Victorian attitudes towards issues of class and gender and how the larger society impacts character relationships in these plays. Texts include Strindberg’s Miss Julie, Ibsen’s A Doll House and Hedda Gabler and Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya.
Students should have taken either RCHUMS 281, 282, or RCCORE 100 or equivalent courses in the Theater department or have had previous acting experience.
