Dramaturgical Resources


Over the course of seasons past, our assistant directors and student dramaturgs have compiled dramaturgical resources relating to each production as it developed.

Click on the name of the production to access websites which relate to the history of the play, biographies of the playwright, or sites that can contextualize or shed light on the directorial approach to the dramatic material.
