THE 2304 Script Analysis

This course attempts to study selected dramas in literature from a practical standpoint. Through the analysis of these plays actors, directors and designers can better understand the dramatic potential of the literature that they will be utilizing in performance. This practical approach to analysis is underpinned with a formalist methodology, a standard system of classification used in dramatic literature textbooks. Discussion of representative plays, watching videos of plays, and critiquing live performances will be utilized, in addition to lectures.
