"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 "'my constant companion in future"
