About this course:

Taking up from where we left off in the first course, we continue with a new play by each of these three great American playwrights—Williams, Miller, and Albee—and finish with a contemporary play to be determined. After viewing each play, we discuss the through-lines that linked the objectives of each character together and thus pushed each character forward through the narrative. Plays in full will be viewed, as plays were meant to be seen. A play is a statement on the human condition, a philosophical statement made in flesh and blood, and perhaps even written in blood as Nietzsche said all real philosophy must be. “The play’s the thing…” How right the Bard was. The Greeks, who originated the art form, said they were sacred.
