This course surveys drama and theatre history from ancient Greece through the Restoration. The course provides an in-depth study of theatre practices, conventions, developments, movements, dramatic criticism, dramatic literature, script and production analysis, audience, acting, directing, scene and costume design, and theatre history. We will examine theatre as an art that both reflects and participates in the social, political, religious, and theatrical aspects of the various periods to better acquaint the student with these areas and their place in the development of modern drama.
