“This is a fantastic resource. I really love that the book provides a clear breakdown of the dreaded written exam. It’s a comprehensive guide to the theatre roles and key terminology they will need to be able to use, a detailed exploration of how a variety of theatre makers might explore the set text, and there’s a third invaluable section about how to successfully analyse a live production. You can tell it has been written by an experienced teacher as there are plenty of exercises that you can use – just as they are, or adapted for other units. As a teacher who has more experience in acting and directing, I was so grateful to find plenty of examples of how a range of theatre designers would approach the text. Impressed with the price too – I would definitely recommend to students and teachers!”
