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 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.
