Take me to the archived exhibition.

As a powerful and often overlooked medium in a technology driven-world, theater has consistently challenged social, political and cultural norms. Theater played an important role in these movements.  Most playwrights did not limit themselves to one style of writing or participating in only one movement.  The playwrights celebrated in this exhibit experimented not only with their own writing, but also with pushing the limits of what the theater was capable of being.

This exhibition was originally on display in the Special Collections main gallery on the second floor of Morris Library from January 28-June 8, 2011.
