About this book

This book considers the state of contemporary theatre education in Great Britain. The book is in two parts. The first half considers the national identities of each of the three mainland nations of England, Scotland, and Wales to understand how these differing identities are reflected through theatre and education and in what way such characteristics now manifest themselves within cultural and creative learning and theatre education specifically. The second half attends to 21st century theatre education, proposing a more explicit correlation between contemporary theatre and theatre education. It considers how theatre education in the country has arrived at its current state and why it is often marginalised in national discourse. Attention is given to some of the most significant developments in contemporary theatre education, connecting experimental practice from theatre makers across the three nations and reflecting on how their practice is informed by and offers a challenge to conceptions of place and nation. Drawing upon the latest research and strategic thinking in culture and the arts alongside over thirty interviews and practitioner case studies, the book is infused with rigorous and detailed analysis of theatre education, illuminated by the voices of innovative theatre practitioners.
