Course Introduction

In your first year you will be introduced to contemporary theatre and literary work studying what's going on in London theatre and in literature right now. In your second year the programme looks at the history and context of both subjects, with option modules from Greek Drama to American Theatre as well as examining literature of the new millennium and different kinds of performance such as site'specific work. You will also have the chance to take a practical module in drama if you want to, learning how to devise theatrical performances. In the third year you have plenty of option choices. Find out about Irish literature, adaptations and theatre journalism. You will also have the chance to write a dissertation on a subject of your choice or, write a play and critique of your own work. Alongside your academic training you can develop some practical skills in writing and theatre'making.
