Book Description

May 1 1995 The Dimensions of Drama

Drama Worlds examines the complex improvised event called process drama and identifies it as an essential part of today's theatre. Cecily O'Neill considers process drama's sources and connections with more familiar kinds of improvisation: the texts it generates, the kinds of roles available, factors such as audience and dramatic time, and the leader's function in the event.

She provides examples of several process dramas and identifies key dramatic strategies and characteristics.

The explicit associations between theatre form and process drama make this approach accessible and its purposes and possibilities easy to understand, particularly to those working in actor training and theatre. Teachers and directors will discover effective ways to explore drama worlds and achieve a significant dramatic experience for all participants.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Outline and Reference for Teachers June 28 2000
Format:Paperback
This book may become a classic, but only for those who are already familiar with what process drama is. I found it far too complex for teacher education students not already exposed to the language and terms she uses. Still, it is a book to which I constantly to back. It presents process drama both descriptively and through practical examples, the author's voice narrating constant insight throughout. If interested in process drama in a more introductory form, try her book "Drama Structures" which presents several lesson units using process drama as the main narrative force.

This is an outstanding book. I used The Crucible
Lesson with my Acting 12 class and it went over like gangbusters! Great for both playwrights and teachers.
