MODERN DRAMA AND THE THEATRE OF THE ABSURD
In the twentieth century, art and drama reacted to the cataclysmic events of two world wars and the profound changes in society and culture that followed. This course explores the theory and practice of absurdist theatre, from Dadaism through the work of such authors as Beckett, Ionesco, and Pinter.
