This subject examines the major conventions of naturalism, epic theatre, and avant-garde experimentalism within European and American Theatre from Büchner through to the plays of Pinter and Albee during the mid-1960s. Play scripts are studied through a systematic approach to dramaturgical research and analysed as texts for performance. Special attention is paid to the analysis of dramatic structure, and how the development of dramatic tension is associated with the focus given to philosophic questions relating to the ethical and moral dilemmas that confront the central characters within a play.
