Format: Paperback
I love this book. It is so easy to use and I don't lead workshops or rehearsals without it now. The layout means you can just dip in and grab a game at a seconds notice and it has games for all ages, purposes and group sizes - it really is brilliant.

Having read a copy of this book, I have bought one for each year group of my primary school. This book contains a wide variety of drama games, in categories such as warm-ups, trust games, characterisation, etc. Each game is clearly explained, with suitable ages from 6 to adult, length of activity, follow-ups, and so on. This is great to dip into but can also be used as a stepping stone for further in-depth activities in a drama lesson.

What a great book. Loads of ideas which can be used as a starting point in a workshop or linked together to make an enjoyable and focused session. Completly invaluble. Creating workshops would be so much harder without this book.

A clear and easy to read guide to a range of games. Each with age recommendations and instructions for resources and playing rules. For those who have been working in this area for some time there may not be many new ones but for those who are new to drama it will prove an invaluable resource. Would also be useful to those working with children in day care or teaching as many of the games can be used outside the drama workshop.

this has got loads of great ideas for drama games - ideal for teachers or brownies/guides/summer schools/after school clubs etc. Clearly written and easy to follow and you mostly don't need any equipment etc.

I use this regularly in drama clubs and in a variety of lessons for KS2 children. It offers a range of games categorised by purpose (eg training voice, energising, imagination etc)so it's easy to pick starter games for the particular session you have planned. I've also used the games in Xmas parties and such like as well as time fillers at the end of the day. An invaluable resource for any teacher.

After an interesting and worth reading introduction, Jessica Swale launches into the body of the work. Well organised and explained, this is a brilliant tool to help you plan drama workshops and includes material that I have not come across before. At the present price it is a must have.

I bought this book to help me plan an after-school drama club for primary school kids.
It's a great book and offers a good variety of games.
I had a limited space to work within, and this book offered plenty of games for small spaces.
The games are perfect for primary school kids and I can see how they'd be good for older groups as well.
The book is formatted in an easy-to-skim way. Great to grab and flip through at a moment's notice.
I'm very happy with it.
