See playbuilding at work as young actors negotiate, try out ideas, analyze, evaluate, modify plans, and practise. Building Plays offers effective techniques for using student ideas to encourage dialogue, create scripts, rehearse and present a complete play. Simple ideas for creating a play in a day are included, as well as suggestions for finding inspiration for playbuilding in topics as varied as song, television, and Shakespeare.
The book illustrates how "Canadian Stories," an award-winning play built around young immigrant experiences, evolved. Also featured is "G'Day Sport," an Australian play built by students as a term project.
Full of ready-to-use ideas, this practical handbook offers a theoretical framework for using playbuilding to promote learning in new and innovative ways.
