Educational drama makes heavy demands on teachers’ energy and time. This book suggests ways to stimulate work for children, by using improvisation in actor training, role-play, drama therapy and the study of Shakespeare. This innovative work includes the play, Radical Will, which brings Shake­speare to life for today’s children by presenting the characters and scenarios in a light with which they can empathise. Dr Pickering is a director of the Institute for the Arts in Therapy and Education and Chief Examiner in Speech and Drama for the London College of Music.
