English 90ds. Death of a Salesman (or Two)
Tuesdays, 2-4 pm | Location: Farkas 203
Enrollment: Limited to 12 students.
This course combines research and practice, offering an introduction to discursive, realist, and devised theater by examining the legacy of Arthur Miller’s 1949 play, Death of a Salesman. Hailed (by Americans) as an American masterpiece, at once maudlin, mordant, embarrassingly timebound and irritatingly prescient, the play provides a basis for thinking about capitalism, ethics, theater, film, and what it means to “act American.” The course is open to specialists and non-specialists alike, and will combine experimental dramaturgy with regular performance and directing assignments. It will culminate in a final project.
Note: This is the same course as TDM 128x.
