The theater industry has a problem. Despite the advancements made by feminist activists in the last century, data shows that female, trans, and non-binary playwrights, directors, and designers remain woefully underrepresented in the field. Those studies expose an even more dire situation for artists of color. What are feminist theater-makers doing to make the industry more inclusive, equitable, and accessible? How are industry norms and mainstream theatre critics impeding their efforts? This course engages with these questions through the analysis of feminist plays, theater criticism, and scholarship. It introduces students to key concepts in intersectional feminism, while also fostering students' personal writing practices. Through weekly writing assignments, in-class discussions, and collaborative writing workshops students will learn to analyze texts and produce cogent, persuasive prose.
