Three Classics in 20th-Century American Theatre - $30

Wednesdays, 9:00 a.m.
Instructor: Dr. Mark Cirino, Chair and Professor of English/Melvin M. Peterson Endowed Chair in English

Over six weeks, we will read three masterpieces of American drama: Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman (1949), Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun (1959), and August Wilson’s, Fences (1985). We will discuss aspects of theme, language, and character as we enjoy these magnificent plays. Our focus will not be on performance, although we may well watch the occasional scene from these productions to illustrate a point. We will spend two weeks on each text. No prior experience with drama or these plays is expected. Curiosity and enthusiasm are all that is needed. This course will be conducted via Zoom meetings.
