A Student’s Handbook
Author(s): Nick O’Brien, Annie Sutton, Victoria May
Theatre in Practice provides students with all of the ‘must have’ Drama skills required for A-Level, International Baccalaureate, BTEC and beyond. Practical, step-by-step exercises and diagrams give access to the key figures and processes central to drama, including: * Stanislavski, Brecht, Lecoq and Berkoff * devising theatre * rehearsing and performing monologues and duologues * how to approach directing a play * improvising. Each chapter offers advice for both students and teachers, with notes and follow-on exercises ideal for individual study and practice. Written by specialists with extensive experience leading workshops for the ‘post 16’ age-group, Theatre in Practice is a thorough and imaginative resource that speaks directly to students.
