Description

"

'I wish I'd had this book when I was starting out as a young director... I cannot recommend it highly enough.' Marianne Elliott, from her Foreword

This dip-in, flick-through, quick-fire resource book in the bestselling Drama Games series offers dozens of ideas and exercises to energise and inspire a bold, creative rehearsal process for any play, of any period or genre.

Aimed at directors of all levels, it covers every aspect of rehearsal, including:

  • Warm-up exercises to prepare the body, voice and mind, and to create a strong ensemble
  • Ideas for approaching the text, tackling the ‘Story of the Play’
  • A wealth of games for unlocking the ‘World of the Play’, including developing characters, finding a physical style, understanding genre and investigating themes
  • Suggestions for exploring sound and music, whether for use in the production or simply to encourage a sense of fun in rehearsals
  • This essential ‘go-to’ book will provide you with a host of original and illuminating games, perfect for the play you’re rehearsing, be it Shakespeare or Greek tragedy, a Restoration comedy, physical theatre, Modern Naturalism – or even a brand new play.

    Marianne Elliott, one of the most innovative and exciting directors working anywhere in the world, describes it as a ‘beautiful, and very clearly written book’ which will become her ‘constant companion in future’.
