dc.description.abstractThe digital landscape has had a significant impact on literature and the way in which it is consumed, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The shift towards digital operations has enabled the rise of digital literary forms, such as audiobooks and electronic literature, which have opened up new possibilities for interpretation and pedagogy. At the same time, this literary transition to technology has enabled the revival of oral traditions in literature, bringing a new level of immersion and engagement to the reading experience. This thesis explores the impact of the digitized productions on the performance of various Western writers, such as Shakespeare, Euripides, and Strindberg as well as the production considerations of Houston’s own Alley Theatre . Through the use of digital media and multimodal compositions, the digital landscape has enabled the creation of new and innovative aural and visual modes of experiencing Shakespeare's works and has forever altered the production considerations of the local theatre and other similar institutions. As we move further into the digital age, it is important to consider the ways in which these changes are shaping our experiences and interactions with literature, theatre, and the world around us.
