ENGL 34 From Anna Christie to Hamilton (and Donald Trump): Modern American Drama

In this course we’ll take up iconic plays in modern and contemporary American Drama -- Eugene O’Neill’s Anna Christie and Long Day’s Journey into Night, Arthur Miller’s All My Sons and Death of A Salesman, Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, August Wilson’s Fences, Tony Kushner’s Angels in America,  Suzan Lori-Parks’ Topdog/Underdog, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton -- and consider the ways in which they were shaped by historical events even as as they helped to shape (and in some cases reform ) U.S. culture and politics. In the final week, the class will analyze the theatrical design, dramatic structure, and cultural efficacy of a Donald Trump rally.
