THTR 208 Theater and Diversity

This course focuses on plays that address issues of gender, race, class and ethnicity through the medium of live theater. The course also will examine how cross-gender and cross-cultural casting (sometimes referred to as "color-blind" casting) affects theatrical reception and response. Workshops on Theater of the Oppressed and Undesirable Elements will provide students with opportunities to make theater based on diversity issues. [GM1, H, V, W]
