Professor Leslie Jacobson    All theatre is political – it either supports or challenges the  status quo .    This idea will be tested through our semester together.    Theatre gives the audience – and the performers – opportunities to experiment with a variety of life choices, and to experience individual and societal challenges in a safe creative space. This course will focus on theatre of social change as practiced in the 20th and early 21st centuries. Together, we will explore case studies from South Africa, Europe, and the US. You will research and write about a particular play, theatre company, or practitioner using theatre to effect societal change.   And you will create and perform, individually or with others in the class, a final project that is a piece of social action theatre.
