The aim of the course will be twofold:

          First, the course will serve as a starting point for students wishing to seriously pursue the study of theater.  To this end, we will examine the principle areas of theater including a thorough review of significant plays and comment from the important periods in the development of dramatic literature.  We will also study the role of theater in society, as well as the function of the actor, the playwright, the designers and technicians, and the director.    We will also look at significant developments in modern and current theater.

 

          Second, the course will fulfill the expectations of the greater University community by providing the elements consistent with the requirements for Boston College core credit.  To this end, the course will demand critical thinking and writing skills consistent with University standards.   Students will be required to see at least two plays during the semester and write intelligent well-thought-out reviews of the productions.   Students will also be asked to prepare a final project that will be of a creative/critical nature and may be presented to the class during the final weeks of the semester.

          Extra credit may be earned by reading plays in addition to the ones assigned and writing critical essays on them, or by seeing productions of plays at
Boston College and writing critical reviews of them.
