(about radical anarchist Emma Goldman). Her last play was Famous,

Lecture One:

Families, Form, Diversity, Impact: American Playwrights from

A survey of landmark plays and playwrights from 1970-2000, paying
special to attention to the importance of the “family” play in America
and plays that have had a positive effect on public policy, such as John
Herbert’s Fortune and Men’s Eyes , a
Canadian play that premiered in New York City and helped lead to
American prison reform and the winning of some gay rights. This era of
American theatre saw the emergence of writers from diverse cultural
backgrounds (women, queer, African-American, Chinese-American, Latino/a
writers). Playwrights experimented with form, drawing inspiration from
visual art, music, and dance. Play creation techniques from influential
playwrights/teachers of playwriting will also be discussed.

Lecture Two:

Firsts and Beyond Borders: American and Canadian Playwrights from

The new millennium saw the first Latino writer, the first African
American woman, to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama (a prestigious
national American award), as well as playwrights reaching across borders
of all kinds. Innovations are made in form and structure through a rise
in plays that are created through interviews and international
collaborations, such as such as Ruined,
The Lamarie Project, Burn Gloom, and Jade in
the Coal. Playwrights examine their cultures of origin,
immigration policies, and stereotypes. Erik Ehn spearheads
collaborations with Rwanda, Africa; Paul Yee/Pangaea Arts works with
performers from Ghangzhou; Lynn Nottage wins the Pulitzer Prize for her
play inspired by women’s stories from the Congo, Africa; Chay Yew writes
about Shanghai.
