Summary:"A drama workshop is not just for actors. All of us need the actor's skills of observation, presentation, and self-confidence in our everyday 'performances' and social encounters. Carefully structured and guided, a drama workshop can be a safe space in which anyone can develop these skills. Full of activities and advice to help you help others in a group setting. Primarily aimed at directors, drama teachers, facilitators and students, Playing the game has something for all who work with groups, whatever the context"--Page 4 of cover.
