TPST-130 Play Analysis
Fall for 2015-2016
Spring for 2015-2016
This gateway course introduces students to reading and writing about plays in the context of theatrical production and performance. Engaging with plays from a variety of periods, cultures, genres and styles, we will develop students’ ability to read plays closely while analyzing the host of production choices - inspired by structure, theme, context and interpretive lens, for example. Plays studied range from classics to contemporary realism, farce to solo performance. This course is
required for all TPST majors, and includes writing assignments designed to hone students’ emergent critical and creative voices.
