This book is the first in a projected series offering a wealth of drama games for people of all ages and abilities. Their aim is to ensure that the drama leader never runs out of fresh ideas. A dip-in, flick-through, quick-fire resource book, packed with 101 lively drama games for use in any classroom or workshop setting. The games are designed to explore a wide range of core drama skills: energy, focus, teamwork, trust, character, storytelling, imagination and improvisation.
Each page features clear instructions on How to Play, notes on the Aim of the Game and advice on age range, number of players, timing and skills developed. The games are also ideal for directors in the rehearsal room, searching for new ways to energise and inspire actors.
