The subject Drama is located within the Department of English.
Drama exists as texts which we can study, but is only fully realised when a dramatic text becomes live in performance. The study of drama is therefore academic (the analysis of texts) and creative (acting, designing, writing and directing).
Drama is an ideal medium for addressing issues of contemporary relevance and debate. Historical and ancient dramatic texts are also often updated to the technology and conventions of modern theatre. An understanding of historical and cultural changes in theatre is therefore necessary to all practical drama.
