In this course, students will examine how theatrical conventions are challenged by authors who question the meaning of existence, and explore the limits of language and human relationships in our contemporary society. Possible readings include plays from the Theatre of the Absurd with Beckett and Ionesco as well as works by politically engaged playwrights who address topics such as exile and immigration, slavery and colonialism, race and gender.
