-  THTR 420 provides a survey of some of the major works and authors in modern western theatre (late 1800s to contemporary theatre). In addition to reading plays as representative of particular authors, periods and movements in theatre history, we will also read plays against each other, examining the ways in which similar themes are dealt with in different periods, exploring issues of gender, politics, and other social issues. It is expected that by the end of the course students will have an understanding of the broad outlines of some of the major issues of late-nineteenth and twentieth-century theatre history. THTR 320 is not required for students to register in this course, but students should be in their 3rd or 4th year.
