Spring 2021 Drama Course

Dr. Caleb Corkery will be teaching a really interesting Literature/Creative Writing ENGL 642 Drama (14377) Tuesdays 6-9pm, Blended.

Spring 2021 runs 1/25/2021 through 5/08/2021

Longer description:

This course will explore drama from various perspectives.  We will read plays, read theory and advice about writing in this genre, and we will practice scenes and short plays ourselves.  Maybe some of you can act a little bit (I can’t), so you’d also have a chance to read and perform if you’d like.  We will cover some history of the genre, though our focus will be primarily on contemporary drama.  Some playwrights we will read include: Maria Irene Fornes, Romulus Linney, Mac Wellman, Marsha Norman, James Baldwin, Christopher Durang, David Mamet, Lynn Nottage, among others.
