“This book profoundly altered my own teaching and gave me a glimpse of what it is possible to achieve through drama. Heathcote's approach to drama has inspired teachers in every classroom where active and authentic learning is valued. I am confident that this fascinating picture of a remarkable educator at work will continue to motivate and challenge new generations of teachers and learners.”–Cecily O'Neill, from the Foreword
