Discover the thrilling world of London and explore English culture through professional theatre. Students will experience a diverse range of current productions from the classics to the cutting edge; we will examine cultural trends and social issues through the lens of the theatre. The influence of English history will come alive as students visit theaters, museums, historic sites (e.g., Stratford on Avon, the National Theatre, the Globe Theatre, Westminster Abbey, and more), and attend 4-5 notable and dynamic theatre productions. Group discussions will be a vital part of class time in London and guests from the field will visit the class on location.
NOTE: Students enrolled in this course should anticipate being assessed up to $175 additional to cover the cost of play tickets.
