Review:

"A basic operating manual for anyone who works with expressive therapies, role play, storytelling. Jo Salas's language is as direct and evocative as a Playback Theatre episode. Study this book, use it!" -- Robin Larsen, PhD, co-author, A Fire in the Mind: The Life of Joseph Campbell

"Readers concerned with story and theatre will find much of interest in this clearly and simply written account, which combines some of the elements of a how-to manual with reflection and theory." -- Parabola Magazine

"This is a must-read book not only for theatre artists, but for educators and social service professionals interested in the arts as a tool toward both self-expression and community building." -- Mady Schutzmann, Co-Editor, Playing Boal: Theatre, Therapy, Activism
