The Theater in Education (TIE) movement emerged in 1960s Britain as a unique hybrid of performance and child-centered learning. Roger Wooster’s Contemporary Theater in Education tells the story of the creation of this dramatic form and its adaptation in a rapidly changing political, economic, and educational environment.
In addition to interviews with prominent TIE directors and discussions of specific projects, this volume offers a snapshot of all the productions held in Wales during a single month during the summer of 2004. As the distinction between TIE and children’s theater becomes even more blurred, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone studying the use of theater in schools.
