Program Description

Now in its 34th  year, Drama in Stratford and London 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.

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.
