Applied Drama by Helen Nicholson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Helen Nicholson examines the ways in which drama and theatre have been applied to different community and educational contexts. She provides an overview of the theoretical concepts underpinning practice in applied drama and theatre and examines a range of practices in the light of contemporary theoretical and political concerns. Applied drama has a radical democratic history, and this book explores how practitioners confront questions of community, creativity and citizenship in theatre which is orientated towards social change.
