The syllabus will include comedies by Edward Albee or David Ives as well as dramatic works by playwrights such as Arthur Miller, Richard Nelson and Tennessee Williams. Written assignments will include script analysis, critiques of outside productions and journal work. Midterm and End-of-Term studio productions will be acted and directed by the members of the course under the direct supervision of the instructor.
