Comedy, tragedy and tragicomedy. Who could ask for anything more? During this course, you will read together as a group, August Strindberg's Creditors as translated by Howard Brenton, NoŽl Coward's Private Lives and After the Dance by Terence Rattigan. These plays, written between 1888 and 1939, are a classical portrayal of secrets, lies, seduction, power and passion. To enrich your reading, you will watch some enthralling and varied screenings of key scenes as well as documentaries about the playwrights. This will generate comparison and discussion of social mores, man's folly, the role of women and the enduring institution of marriage, which has been the mainstay of theatre from Greek Drama to the present day.
