Contemporary Theatre: Reading Award-Winning Canadian Plays
You will have the opportunity to encounter some of Canada’s most celebrated playwrights by reading their work aloud. You will learn to analyze each play's meaning and relevance. Scripts are expanded by articles, videos and interviews to help illuminate the writer's work and the world in their plays. You will read plays about community, love, wisdom of elders and the relationship between art and politics.
No acting experience is necessary, the lively text does the work for you.
