‘A magnificently readable tour of theatrical history conducted by our best-informed living critic.’ Michael Billington From 458 BC and the first performance of Aeschylus’ Oresteia on an Athenian hillside, to 2009 AD and Jez Butterworth’s astonishing Jerusalem at London’s Royal Court Theatre, here is an expert guide to the seminal, pivotal, and transcendent moments in theatre history. ‘Benedict is one of the freshest and most vivid writers on theatre.’ Janet Suzman ‘Benedict has been the leading theatre critic of his generation and has written for The Times for twenty years, setting the standard by which the great performances and productions are judged. People onstage, backstage and in the audience have come to trust his every observation and judgement delivered with style, humour and passion.’ James Harding, Editor, The Times ‘Benedict Nightingale’s characteristically witty, insightful and enthusiastic reports make you wish you’d been sitting next to him during his greatest moments in the theatre.’ Ian McKellen ‘I’ve known Benedict Nightingale for more than fifty years over which time he has become one of the Theatre’s most distinguished and influential commentators. He writes with style, perspective and wit, and with a deep knowledge of his subject. In turn he is greatly admired by the theatre profession and, as importantly, by his readers and the audiences who trust the fairness of his opinions.’ Sir Peter Hall

If you’re a preservice teacher planning to teach the theatre arts, an in-service secondary teacher considering a foray into teaching theatre, or a theatre professional considering the classroom, there’s a lot to learn. But you don’t have to know everything to teach well from the start, you just need Theatre in the Secondary School Classroom. Theatre in the Secondary School Classroom is the trusty guide that every new theatre teacher will be grateful to have as a ready reference. It’s not an encyclopedia on secondary theatre, but a collection of musts that every beginning instructor needs to know. Theoretical, practical, and friendly, Theatre in the Secondary School Classroom introduces key instructional methods and successful strategies, and works through the problems of practice that face all instructors, regardless of their experience. With discussions of finding appropriate spaces (both personal and physical), assessing students’ learning, encouraging involvement, and more, you’ll find the crucial information you need to hit the ground running. Patterson, McKenna-Crook, and Ellington provide numerous illustrations, model letters to parents, work samples, rubrics, checklists, and example test questions to show you precisely how the nitty-gritty of theatre education plays out. In addition each chapter contains suggested extension activities for students, Internet links to valuable resources and research materials, and experience-won hints on topics of specific interest to the new theatre teacher.
