Plays with a Social Conscience

Examine how five well-known playwrights bring moving, memorable stories to the stage and illuminate the injustices evident in cultures and communities. Issues of gender, race, and class are given special focus. We will read George Bernard Shaw, Pygmalion; Arthur Miller, The Crucible; Lynn Nottage, Intimate Apparel; David Henry Hwang, Yellow Face; and Anna Deavere Smith, Fires in the Mirror. Active participation in class discussion is encouraged.
