DRAM100 is an introduction to significant concepts and issues in the study of drama and in the role of drama in society. The course will take an inquiry-based learning approach and engage with these topics through question and investigation. We will explore a range of topics from acting to devising theatre, from criticism to directing, and from stage design to theories of the theatre. Consistent with the overall liberal arts perspective of the drama program here at Queen’s, we will encourage critical thinking about the communicative role of theatre in society and the analysis of what makes good theatre.
