Course Details

The purpose of this class is to develop a more critical understanding of social issues through drama. The class focuses on the issues included in the play (SEVEN) including but not limited to democracy, education, reproductive health, trafficking in persons, refugees and crisis and home (domestic) violence. Each week we will cover one section of the play SEVEN after reviewing at least one major issue. Weekly online reading assignments introduce background information to help participants understand the connections between the issues presented and the play. Each student is expected to: 1) do some background research on one character; and 2) take part in a final reading of the play. This course is not aimed at specialists and participants with diverse experience are welcome to join.

Special Note:

The script should be purchased before the class starts. Worksheets and online readings will be available to class participants only.
