Plays for Physical Theatre II: Six plays for young adults, with production notes

Author(s): Angie Farrow

Education

Angie�s first volume of plays, Plays for Physical Theatre, has had great success in New Zealand and Australia. Numerous productions have been staged in schools, community theatres and tertiary institutions. This second volume of physical theatre plays provides greater choice and variety than the first, with the inclusion of texts designed for use in classroom and workshop scenarios as well as for public performance. The six plays in this volume are designed for a broad spectrum of age groups, but are likely to have particular appeal to those studying theatre at senior secondary and tertiary levels. Each play is accompanied by extensive production notes, which provide ideas to stimulate the rehearsal process. The notes give advice and information on:



  • how the plays were written

  • understanding the plays� themes and metaphors

  • approaches to characterisation

  • ideas for staging

  • uses of theatre space

  • building the audience�performer relationship.


Discounts are available on multiple copies.
