Experimental Playwriting

THAR 3606.401

crosslisted as:
ENGL 3606
Monday & Wednesday 12pm to 1:30pm

A course on writing for theater and performance. Students will take cues from myriad experimental playwrights and performance artists who have challenged conventional ideas of what a script should look and sound like, how narrative is constructed, how characters are built, and what a setting can be. This class will push beyond the formal structures of the well-made play script and address how writers explore and reinvent form and language as a means for radical change.
