Script analysis asks the reader to go beyond the dialogue on the page to seek answers that allow us to understand the play and the characters in a much more in-depth level. This course will challenge the reader to look at many plays from multiple perspectives through research of time period, setting, and genre to allow a full realization of where and when the characters live. Through careful script analysis students will discover the playwright’s intentions and unearth the truth about the characters as well as learn how the actor, director and designers utilize such analysis to transform the script into a full production on the stage.
