This is a book for the years preceding the GCSE, when students are starting their preliminary work for the drama examination.
Two “presenters” show how drama developed and introduce the actors, dramatists and audiences of their times.
Their dialogues are followed by ideas to stimulate dramatic imagination and its practical expression.
This work provides stimulating ideas for drama work. It shows how drama has developed and introduces actors, dramatists and audiences from different eras. Extracts are provided from well-known plays from each period, along with related activities.
