The Final Assignment is a single essay question –
What is good theatre?
In 3-5 pages describe what you feel is good theatre. You must use examples from the readings, plays and/or video we watched (Billy Elliot, Ernest Shackleton Loves Me, The Importance of Being Earnest, Oedipus the King, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, Oklahoma!, Ruined, Indecent, Los Vendidos, Every Little Step, Sky, Polygraph, The Woodsmen, Stop. Kiss., Showbusiness: The Road to Broadway) to illuminate your argument.
This is an opinion question, so there is no absolute right or wrong answer. In the simplest terms, I am asking what you liked and why. But to score high on this assignment, I expect you to provide well-thought-out arguments, good use of evidence, and strong analysis.
Formal essay structure applies, so please include an introduction and a conclusion.
