All the world’s a stage, says Shakespeare, and we are the actors. Throughout our life, we play many parts. Perhaps that is why we enjoy watching drama.
The action presented is sometimes realistic, sometimes not, but it always communicates something about human life. In this course, you will have the opportunity to experience a variety of dramatic forms through readings, discussions, and creation of your own scripts. Additionally, the core elements of drama from a rhetorical perspective will be explored.
