ENGL 250H - Independent Study: Contemporary British Theater - London

Semester Hours: 3
Students in this course read, study, discuss, and write about contemporary British theatre – that is, British drama since World War II.  Among the playwrights to be studied are Samuel Beckett, John Osbourne, Tom Stoppard, Harold Pinter, David Hare, Alan Ayckbourn, Peter Shaffer, Michael Frayn, and Christopher Hampton.  Since the course will be taught in London, classwork will be supplemented with performances of contemporary plays, along with the classics of world theatre (depending on what is being staged in London at the time).  Classwork will be augmented with performances at the Royal National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the West End and/or fringe performances, and a backstage tour of the Royal National Theatre.  The course will include four theatre performances.  Optional theatre performances are available as well. The course will introduce students to the city of London as the literary and dramatic capital of the English-speaking world.  The British Library will be used as a major resource for literary research.
