Section: A

CRN: 10936

Credits: 4

This course is an advanced scene study. Students will continue to refine their abilities to portray a variety of characters and enhance the actor's knowledge of their body as an acting instrument. Through extensive scene study, students will focus on the specific theme of "prison plays." While studying the scenes from the plays of Kwame Kwei-Armah, Bola Agbaje, August Wilson, Vaclav Havel, Tennessee Williams, and others, students will meet formerly incarcerated individuals and learn from their experiences inside and outside prison in order to understand the criminal justice system, specifically the issues facing former prisoners as they re-enter society. Students will then apply these literary and real-life stories to their scene studies.This upper-level course is restricted to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
