Description: This course will take a close look at plays written in Britain and Ireland over the last century, exploring works by playwrights such as John M. Synge, George Bernard Shaw, Shelagh Delaney, Harold Pinter, Carol Churchill, Brian Friel and Martin McDonagh. Each week will be devoted to a different playwright. Students will both examine how the plays speak to the particular time and society in which they were written, and explore the creative potential of producing them on our own stages now.
