Drama Extensions

This unit will allow us to delve deeper into concepts of genre (including absurdism) and relationships between texts and their contexts. We will study the philosophical constructs of existentialism and examine its influence on genre via the advent of absurdist theatre after studying its impacts on the problem play via Hedda Gabler. This unit will be our first exposure to Modernism via European texts which will serve as a basis for our study of American Modernism later in the year.
