Theatre For Childrenby David Wood, Janet Grant
David Wood has been called by the London Times "the national children's dramatist." Presenting theatre for children as a separate art form, Mr. Wood analyzes the skills involved in entertaining and involving audiences of children everywhere. He reveals his special techniques for catching and holding a child's attention, provides a practical step-by-step guide illustrated with excerpts from Iris plays, and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into them.
