What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A useful survey of a number of strands of work concerned with the relationship between theatre and change in its many manifestations.' - New Theatre Quarterly

'A timely update of the very influential handbook on educational theatre...I commend the authors for their painstaking research, the quality of their scholarship and outreach, and for the groundbreaking and timely contribution of Theatre for Change' - Philip Taylor, Associate Professor of Educational Theatre, New York University, USA

'As one who teaches undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of drama and theatre education, theatre for young audiences, and applied theatre, I would draw on this book in each of those courses as a means of helping students understand the connections among these disciplines. The work simultaneously provides an eagle's eye overview and a thoughtful, close analysis of specific praxis.' - Robert Colby, Associate Professor and Graduate Programme Director, Emerson College, USA
