The emphasis in this course is on modern drama produced on the British Stage, each play is quintessentially British but with universal meaning. The plays have been drawn together with a view to exploring certain interconnections in their themes: territory, property, oppression (political and sexual), the boundaries of the 'normative'. We shall examine the socio-historical and theatrical milieu from which each play arose, and look closely at the varied presentation methods which the playwrights choose to present their views.
