Shakespeare’s Lord Chamberlain’s Men

Sophocles’ Oedipus and Freud

American Musicals by Stephen Sondheim

Areas that could be covered by this presentation include (but are not limited by) the following:

a general history of the period, event, playwright, etc.

staging and production conventions, if applicable

plays and/or other related productions produced

audience responses to or involvement in theatre

impact on society and culture

Unlike other assignments in this course, the project is not necessarily a normal written essay (though an enhanced written research project would be acceptable). Think originality and creativity…that is, graphics, charts, images/videos, Powerpoint/Prezi programs, audio or visual presentations, etc. are all accepted and encouraged. If created in Word, 5-6 pages is recommended; if created in Powerpoint/Prezi, 14-15 panels is suggested.
