The purpose of this discussion is to help you demonstrate your understanding of the history of the theatrical genres of realism, naturalism, anti-realism and absurdism, and feminist theatre, as well as to identify the genre of a theatrical production by its content and identification with a specific aesthetic or cultural movement. In doing so, you will better understand how theatrical productions reflect the ideas of the culture that produce them.
Prompt: (answer ALL 3 questions)
In Chapter 7 of Theatrical Worlds, the author¿s purpose is to give you the tools to help you define theatrical productions through generic criticism. While theatrical productions can hardly be defined as one genre (or "kind"), the two approaches presented to you are to define a production by (1) the content of the production's script and (2) by being identified with a specific aesthetic or cultural movement.
1. Choose 1 of the genres listed above (realism, naturalism, anti-realism and absurdism, and feminist theatre). Define/describe it as a specific aesthetic or cultural movement.
2. Give an example of a play, movie, TV show (past or present) that fits this genre and discuss how it is identified as this genre by the content of the story/script. How does it reflect the ideas of the culture in which it is/was produced?
3. Your textbook says that Shakespeare covers 3 genres. What are these? Identify your favorite Shakespeare play. Identify its genre. Describe how the content of the script/story fits this genre. How did this play reflect the ideas of the culture in which it is/was produced? How can it speak to a contemporary audience?
