Modern Drama HEN308

Introduction

The advent of film and television has highlighted the artificiality of live theatre and made it seem, for many, a redundant mode of communication. In response modern drama has been preoccupied with articulating a new role for itself, focusing attention on its own rituals and the intensity of the actor/audience relationship, and drawing power from the contradictions of its form. This unit aims to introduce a range of provocative dramatic texts and to consider the kind of voice modern drama has developed.
