House of Games Information

Full of games and exercises, House of Games is a resource book for drama leaders, facilitators and theatre directors. Whether the drama group is based in a youth club or a theatre, a hospital or a community hall, this book offers strategies for developing improvisations and productions which are rooted in the everyday experiences of group members. The techniques which are discussed draw widely from the very best of contemporary theatre practice. Following on from Keith Johnstone's Impro and Augusto Boal's Games for Actors and Non-Actors, this book takes the reader into the essential challenges of drama. Several leading facilitators speak of their own approaches, including Phelim McDermott, Lois Weaver, Spare Tyre Theatre Co., Jonathan Kay, Peter Badejo, Wolfgang Stange and John Bergman.
