THE 317 - Society and Minority Theatre

[3 credit(s)]
“Society & Minority Theatre” is predicated on the notion that the American melting pot has failed in its original intent: E Pluribus Unum (“Out of Many, One”). Instead, we may describe the U.S. in reverse: “In One, Many”-so visible and vocal are the nation’s sub-groups. Their rise to prominence has been so vigorous and occasionally so strident that it is often described as a revolution. Blacks, Gays, Women, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians, Handicapped, Aged, et al. Theater artists have chronicled these social eruptions, and their works illuminate these historical and social developments with insight and passion. Through the playwright’s lens, we can gain insight and understanding into both the arts of the theater and significant contemporary social manifestations.
