The Theatre Circle Lecture
Presented by Theatre Circle and the Department of Theatre and Drama

"Shaw the Iconoclast; Shaw the Prophet"

Professor Stephen Watt, Department of English
Director Sabrina Lloyd, Department of Theatre and Drama

Thursday, February 25, 5:30 pm
Bridgwaters Lounge in the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center

Bernard Shaw, the most important British dramatist in the first half of the twentieth century, did not hesitate to attack the beloved institution of Victorian popular theatre of his time. In Major Barbara (1905), he found many ways to undermine the theatre of his day, but he also wrote with a nod towards modernism, anticipating many of the issues of the Cold War and its theatre and drama. In his talk about Major Barbara, Stephen Watt and M.F.A. thesis director Sabrina Lloyd will explore these two aspects of Shaw, his playwriting, and his criticism.
