This edition, edited by Maeve McKeown, includes a Foreword by April De Angelis. 'What Stephen Jeffreys doesn't know about playwriting isn't worth knowing' - Stephen Daldry 'Stephen Jeffreys is as important a teacher as he is brilliant a writer Without him, I wouldn't have been able to write the plays that I have written' - Simon Stephens 'An incredibly useful writing helpmeet. As witty and humane as its author' - Emma Thompson 'What Stephen taught me has shaped my mind and I have shared this with countless writers' - Kwame Kwei-Armah 'Stephen was a true mentor I still draw upon much of what he taught me today' - Abi Morgan 'Like a bird in the air, Stephen was utterly in his element as a teacher. We sat spellbound' - Phyllida Lloyd 'I had the great pleasure of working with Stephen on his play The Libertine. Would that all playwrights had his openness, his talent, his hard-headedness, his experience, his enthusiasm, his audacity, his complexity, and perhaps best of all his talent and interest in eliciting the best in others' - John Malkovich 'Stephen's wit was legendary. "Wit": from the proto-Indo-European word "weid" meaning "to see"/"to know". Stephen "saw" clearly and "knew" profoundly; which is why we sought out the clarity of his words and learned deeply from his laughter' - Simon McBurney 'Stephen was more than just a great bloke whose easy laugh set a room alight; he was a genuine geek, an obsessive about the craft of writing As I read, I was reminded again of his deep connection to plays and how they work.

Playwriting and Young Audiences

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95779547&cjsku=95779547...
Despite the fact that there is a thriving presence of theatre for young people in today's society, there is, however, no contemporary guide dedicated to the writing of plays for young people in both professional and educational contexts. We only have to look at the colourful and compelling plays of Matilda, Annie and Cinderella to realise that there is a surge in plays for the youth of today. Playwriting and Young Audiences helps to fill this gap by offering a comprehensive guide to developing subjects for young people through the use of both practical and critical advice from playwrights on all aspects of new play development.

Playwriting in Schools

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209538399&fc=US&cjsku=209538399...
John Newman invites teachers to take their students on a playwriting voyage in Playwriting in Schools. The book examines why students who learn to write plays and work with a professional playwright in residence empower themselves and how teachers can teach the process of playwriting to make space for the student voice. Playwriting in Schools investigates how adult teachers and playwrights use playwriting as a strategy for student self-expression through two main approaches. One approach is the creation of fully-developed plays written either by individual students taught by teachers or through interactions between a team of students and a teacher-playwright. The other approach is developing plays through collaborations between professional playwrights, teachers and student actors, crafting new plays in ways that suit the needs, interests and learning of young people. Throughout, John and the teachers and playwrights he features express themselves with an artistic generosity that encourages us to widen the scope of our own programs by introducing students to the vast ocean of playwriting and play development.
