Drama

Spring 2021 Mainstage Season

Fridays @ 8

An Enemy of the People

 
4/9: An Enemy of the People (1882) by Henrik Ibsen. A landmark of the drama of Realism. How far should we go in pursuit of Truth and what are the limits of free speech? In a new version by Robert Falls.

4/23: Mr Burns, a Post-Electric Play (2012)  by Anne Washburn. One of America's finest contemporary dramatists, Anne Washburn's darkly comic play asks us how we rebuild after a global crisis and celebrates the enduring nature of theatre itself. And the Simpsons. (performed with a live video feed)

 

 

About UD Drama

A person committed to the study of theater within the framework of a liberal education must be prepared to work toward two goals: first, a thorough competence in the basic skill of dramatic expression and interpretation; and concurrently, a view that comprehends dramatic art as it relates to, expresses, and extends the surrounding culture.
