Plays That Change the World

ENGLISH 218S

This course will examine plays that have had a marked impact on their cultures—an impact beyond an excellent and meaningful theater-going experience. Students will attend live theater on campus and in the Triangle as well as watching select filmed productions of plays. Whenever possible, playwrights, directors, and actors from these productions will speak directly to the class. Students will write and hold public readings of their own full-length plays.
