Sex, Violence, Death and Other Entertainments for Kids: Challenging Drama for Youth

This course will examine a wide variety of highly imaginative plays for children and teens, focusing on how they work as plays and the challenges they present to youth and family audiences. For much of the 20th century, theater for young audiences was simplistic, safe and shallow. Now, plays for young audiences are tackling subjects like sex and death head on, and playwrights are creating works with sophisticated styles and structures. These are exciting theatrical works of the highest artistic order.
