Women’s Voices (DRA2144.01)

Dina Janis

In this class, students will read a large canon of plays by current female playwrights working in the American Theatre today. These will include writers featured on the Kilroy List, Susan Blackburn Award Winners, Lily Award recipients, among others from my own personal list. We will also look at current initiatives within the theatre today to level the playing field and will attempt to explore the systemic reasons for this gender inequity where women playwrights are concerned.

Work will include: play discussion, staging of selected scenes read, creative and critical written responses to plays covered, and research
