about

From the bestselling Drama Games series, this dip-in, flick-through, quick-fire resource book offers dozens of games to serve as a rich source of ideas and inspiration for all actors – and those teaching or directing them.

This must-have companion is divided into three sections, each focusing on a different aspect of the actor’s process:

  • Self provides methods to deepen relaxation, sharpen focus, boost energy, expand imagination and enable a company of actors to work collaboratively
  • Character suggests strategies to aid the process of transformation, encouraging actors to explore characteristics that are distinct from their own
  • And Text offers exercises to unlock the words, allowing free and imaginative work within the structure of a script, without losing specificity
  • The games range from solo explorations which can be performed alone, to ideas for pairs and group work – making them suitable for a wide variety of scenarios and requirements. Overall, the book will serve as an essential foundation for every actor’s creativity, helping improve preparation, rehearsal and performance.

    ‘A mass of invaluable ideas for all ages and all types of actors, amateur or professional. It’s hard to imagine anyone involved in theatre who wouldn’t find it useful.’ Richard Eyre, from his Foreword
