This is a cultural studies on-site experience in which you will immerse yourselves in the rich theatre history of England. We will see first-hand how theatre developed in response to cultural and historical circumstances from Shakespeare’s time through the present in the metropolis. A trip to Bath (and instruction in the development in the eighteenth century of provincial theatre) will give you a glimpse of the way theatre expanded outside the main centers as empire expanded. We will pay close attention to the use of spectacle as public entertainment and attitudes towards spectacle from the eighteenth-century onward.
We will stay in the Belgrave House Hotel in Westminster, London, a 5-minute walk from an underground station. Each room has a private bath.
