Drama in London

Program Description

The Drama in Stratford, London and Edinburgh program provides you an opportunity to study drama in performance at some of the world's leading venues. You will see roughly twelve plays in three weeks, including several productions by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon and performances at a range of London settings, from the new Globe Theatre and the Royal National Theatre to the commercial theaters of London's West End. Faculty-led discussion, behind-the-scenes workshops, and intensive journal writing will guide your experience of the plays and their cultural milieu. The course will introduce you to the history and formal conventions of Anglophone drama, with a special emphasis on the interaction between text and performance. It will also include time for a range of cultural activities and supplementary travel that will expose you to the social and historical landscape of the United Kingdom.


Students will receive 3 credits in English 491 or 591. Students will be asked to keep a journal responding to each of the plays included in the program.

Students taking the course must complete the following:

1.     Attend all scheduled plays and class meetings in Stratford and London.
2.     Submit a journal with entries of 350-500 words each on eleven of the twelve plays
3.     Visit a designated cultural attraction and write a journal entry of 350-500 words about the experience.
