Fall 2003 : theatre theory
This is a new subdirectory; main is @ script.vtheatre.net
3 new subdirectories
I need to keep it in two main parts: craft and styles (periods).
Part Three: showcases -- like Chekhov or Three Sisters?
The Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. What's happened in three centuries after Shakespeare?
High Modernity: from Hamlet to Everyman?
Individual -- from religion to social or artist Christianity? Man is a universe... Character is a story!
Realism -- Why the NEW theatre was needed? New drama, new acting, directing.
Writing assignments: 200 words post after reading each play. Midterm (Outline, 1st Draft, Final), Final (and/or the Scene -- the same three stages or rewrites), tests.
