Театр, пожалуй, как никакое другое из искусств очень тесно связан с обществом. Любые серьезные перемены неизбежно находят отклик и в том, что происходит на театральной сцене, и в том, чего ждёт публика, на что и как она реагирует. Самый первый спектакль русского театра - «Артаксерксово действо» появился во многом для «оправдания» и конституализации женитьбы царя Алексей Михайловича на Наталье Нарышкиной. Курс «проходит» по таким вот «опорным точкам» русской истории и русского театра. Первый национальный герой в трагедии Я.Б. Княжнина «Росслав», путь Щепкина из крепостных актёров на императорскую сцену, отмена театральной монополии в столицах, рождение нового театра - от Театра Анны Бренко к МХТ, «Современнику» и Театру.
