ENGL 189 - Contemporary British TheaterSemester Hours: 3
Students in this course read, study, discuss, and write about British and Irish theater since World War II. Among the playwrights to be studied are Samuel Beckett, Noel Coward, Tom Stoppard, Harold Pinter, David Hare, Alan Ayckbourn, Peter Shaffer, and George Bernard Shaw. Since the course is taught in London, class work is supplemented with five performances of contemporary plays and world theater classics (depending on what is being staged in London at the time). Additionally, the course includes tours of Shakespeare’s Globe and the Royal National Theatre. The course also introduces students to London as one of the major literary and dramatic capitals of the English-speaking world. The British Library is used as a major resource for literary research.
