The Theater in Education (TIE) movement emerged in 1960s Britain as a unique hybrid of performance and child-centered learning. Roger Wooster's "Contemporary Theater in Education" tells the story of the creation of this dramatic form and its adaptation in a rapidly changing political, economic, and educational environment. In addition to interviews with prominent TIE directors and discussions of specific projects, this volume offers a snapshot of all the productions held in Wales during a single month during the summer of 2004. As the distinction between TIE and children's theater becomes even more blurred, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone studying the use of theater in schools. "A most useful, provocative and well-researched theoretical document which I will most certainly have on my essential reading list for students studying theatre in education."--Charmian Savill, University of Aberystwyth

"A most useful, provocative and well-researched theoretical document which I will most certainly have on my essential reading list for students studying theatre in education." - Charmian Savill, University of Aberystwyth "The book gives an informed and erudite account of the history and evolution of T.I.E., with particular emphasis on the way in which that has been shaped by the political, social and artistic developments of the past 60 years - In combining his [Wooster] historic research and audit of current practice in Wales, he offers an interconnecting analysis of cause and effect between the various elements influencing the subject." - Bobby Colvill - The Journal for Drama in Education, 24.2 "How this state of affairs has come about and the paradox it has presented to Theatre in Education (T.I.E) companies is at the heart of this very informative book." - Journal of Drama in Education "This book is primarily of relevance to those who works with TIE [Theatre In Education] or drama in schools as a practitioner or a teacher. It is also a useful resource for schools, or colleges where the application of theatre in a school environment is considered." - Interplay Magazine "This book is an excellent and surprisingly stimulating read." - Matthew Trustman, Dramatherapy
