1. In Adrienne Kennedy’s A Movie Star Has to Star in Black and White. Clara is a young writer who inhabits a world which fails to provide her with master narratives of specific African-American and feminine origins. Discuss the ways in which the character’s suspension in this centerless terrain is captured onstage not only as a private instance but also as a symptom of a larger, collective experience.
2. “AUSTIN: There’s nothing real down here, Lee! Least of all me!” Consider the ways in which the “real” proves unstable and highly questionable category in Sam Shepard’s True West and proceed to examine the original commentary the play offers on contemporary America.
3. In The condition of Postmodernity, David Harvey examines the peculiarities of the present moment and stresses that “the immediacy of events, the sensationalism of the spectacle (political, scientific, military, as well as those of entertainment), become the stuff of which consciousness is forged.” Discuss how pertinent Harvey’s observation proves in the case of the dystopic setting in which the main character finds herself in Jose Rivera’s Marisol.
4. In “Postmodernism and Consumer Society”, Fredric Jameson examines carefully “alarming and pathological symptoms of a society that has become incapable of dealing with time and history”, and argues that this “disappearance” of an acute “sense of history” emerges as one of the most distinctive features of the postmodern moment. Consider the ways in which Suzan-Lori Parks attempts a critical review of widely applied and persistent practices through which history is evaded and even erased, in The America Play.

Choose two of the following topicsand write two well-organized essays.

1.Discuss the innovative way in which the hegemonic role of the Holywood industry in contemporary American culture is reviewed in Adienne Kennedy's A Movie Star Has to Star in Black and White (1976)
2. Consider the ways in which the American west is reclaimed as a valuable topos and a central cultural index for the collective American mind in Sam Shepard's True West (1980)
3. Examine the main dramatic devices and theatrical techniques Jose Rivera employs in his play Marisol (1992) and he seeks to foreground the contemporary urban experience of the dispossessed and the underprivileged.
4. Consider Suzan-Lori Park's effort to approach theater as an "incubator"for historical events and proceed to discuss the role that the playwright prescribes for the audience in The America Play (1993).

Choose two of the following and write two well-organised essays.

The first one was about "A Movie Star has to Star in Black and White" and we had to assess the micro narratives in the play.
The second one was about creative writing in Sam Shepard's "True West" and the third on was about magic realism in Jose Rivera's Marisol.
Αυτά παιδιά. Δεν μπορώ να πω ότι ήταν και πολύ αναμενόμενα. Ήθελαν σκέψη.

Συγγνώμη για την ενοχληση
Ηθελα να ρωτησω εαν ειχε κανείς το μαθημα μεταμοντέρνο αμερικανικό δραμα με τον μπλατανη 8ου εξαμήνου
Χρωσταω μονο αυτο το μαθημα για να παρω πτυχιο και ηθελα να σε ρωτησω μηπως εχεις εσυ ή καποιος γνωστός σου σημειώσεις γιατι δυστυχώς όσους ρώτησα ειτε δεν απαντουν ειτε δεν μου δίνουν
Δυστυχως δε μπορουσα να το παρακολουθώ λογω πρακτικής στην πετρουπολη και δουλειας
Αν μπορουσες να βοηθήσεις με οποιονδηποτε τροπο θα σου ημουν ευγνώμων
Και παλι συγγνωμη για την ενοχληση
