THT291: An Introduction to the British Stage (4-credit) provides students with an opportunity to see the world's best plays and musicals and learn how these productions are made, from page to stage. To prepare for the trip, students will read short essays by some of the most significant playwrights, directors, actors, and designers. Those readings will guide our viewing of at least twelve memorable performances in London and Edinburgh—a number of which will be world premieres, and a Shakespeare production at Shakespeare's Globe on the River Thames.
This course is open to students from ALL majors. Basically, if you have an interest in love, treachery, conflict, and commitment, this course is for you.
