Odyssey: Three Great American Playwrights

These great playwrights wrote their masterpieces more than 50 years ago, and still there is almost never a Broadway season without one of them, and here in Baltimore our regional theaters produce their plays often. In this course we will focus on the human relationships in the plays and discuss why the works and their authors are timeless. Students should read in advance and bring to class the following plays (either in a stand-alone paperback edition, or in a collection that you may already own): Eugene O'Neill 's Anna Christie and The Hairy Ape; Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire; and Edward Albee's The Zoo Story, The Death of Bessie Smith, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
