These games will be invaluable to directors and theatre companies at all levels who are creating new pieces of theatre from scratch and need lively, dynamic games to fire the imagination

They will particularly appeal to school, youth theatre and community groups where devising is a growing trend and a core element of the drama curriculum

Written with clear instructions on How to Play, notes on the Aim of the Game, and illuminating examples from professional productions, the games cover every aspect of the devising process and develop all the skills required - generating ideas, creating characters and scenarios, using stimuli, structuring the piece, and creating an ensemble

" ... highly original and massively useful ... a remarkable compendium of games and exercises ... a lively starting point for rich invention" ~ Mike Leigh, from his Foreword

"A brilliant collection of starting points and structures that can be used again and again" ~

"A book which fairly fizzes with ideas" ~ The Stage
