This subject engages students in an analysis of major theatrical conventions and the dramatic literature of the second half of the Twentieth Century. This is achieved through the study of selected plays, influential theorists and major innovations of the period. Special study will be made of the way theatre changed in the aftermath of the Second World War and how this is reflected in the social and cultural conventions of the time. Special attention is paid to the analysis of dramatic structure, and the way in which that structure works to heighten the dramatic tension associated with the moral dilemmas which the playwright poses through the action of the play.
