Odyssey: Fathers of Modern Drama: Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov

Did you know that Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House has been the most performed play ever? Ghosts, another famous Ibsen play, was performed both here in Baltimore (Everyman Theater) and in New York just last year. August Strindberg's Miss Julie has been performed during the past two years in New York, Scotland, Ireland, and China. Strindberg's The Father also has been popular. And Anton Chekhov's masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard, has been presented on stages everywhere, including by the Royal Shakespeare Company and at Lincoln Center.

In this course, we will discuss how these plays, written more than 100 years ago, are even more relevant today—and how these three amazing playwrights chose their subjects. You may already own these plays or you may purchase any paperback edition.
