Teaching Script Analysis (for the 3rd time)

It has been such a great experience for me to teach Script Analysis at IU. Students seem to really respond to the plays I select for the course. Last semester we covered Antigone, Venus, The Hypochondriac, Three Sisters and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, among other works. The focus of the course is on envisioning fully-realized productions and in service of that, I have built a design project and staged reading project into the syllabus. This gives students an opportunity to apply the analytical tools we have learned to the practical problem of putting a play onstage. Hopefully, they will take these tools and make use of them for the rest of their theatrical career.
