With short film clips to illustrate each lecture, Yale professor and award-winning stage director Murray Biggs details the masterpieces of August Wilson, Horton Foote, Clifford Odets and David Mamet. To make these lectures accessible for all audiences, Professor Biggs will not assume that the audience has prior knowledge of the plays.

All programming and dates are subject to change.
