    Sara Clifford(Author) Anna Herrmann(Author)
Taking a holistic approach, this handbook is designed for those wanting to use drama and theatre to explore personal and social issues in their work with young people. Developed from ten years of active research in community settings, the authors' approach to theatre-making draws on a range of disciplines, including theatre in education, community theatre, youth work, group work and conflict resolution. The book should be suitable for use by both experienced theatre practitioners and beginners, and provides a model that is adaptable for work with different groups and different timescales: a day, a week, or a period of months.

This book offers the reader a comprehensive way of devising issue-based theatre with young people. The model is based on a ten-week full-time Leap project which involves three weeks of group work and training, three weeks of devising and rehearsing, and four weeks of touring. The characters are created as group members research the theme and draw on their own experiences. It allows the young people to be in control of the product they create, supported by the faciitators. There is a strong sense of empowerment. -- Arts Research Digest
