The Complete Shakespearience is a practical guide to teaching Shakespeare in the secondary school. Peter Thomas provides a stage-by-stage programme for introducing students to Shakespeare as a living dramatist for a popular audience. Using practical drama techniques for classroom, individual and group work, the book shows how to make Shakespeare’s scriptcraft the basis for satisfying activities which appeal to all students.

Starting from the principle that Shakespeare was an entertainer and impresario, and that his original audience enjoyed theatre as a physical, visual and auditory experience, this book creates a sequence of classroom activities to promote confidence and enjoyment in performances which do not need great dramatic skill but which get to the heart of Shakespeare's dramatic genius. Beginning with a section on building confidence, there are further exercises in voice, action and group practice, as well as reading to appreciate Shakespeare's stagecraft and how his scenarios relate to our 21st century world.

The Complete Shakespearience also offers edited versions of many scenes from a range of plays which can be presented, practised and performed as stand-alone dramatic experiences. In the upper secondary school, these can form the basis for written and/or Speaking and Listening work and lay the foundation for further study.

A chapter on The Screened Shakespearience will serve as a valuable guide to what is available on film and offers ways to explore and compare both film and stage versions of the plays. The section on Shakespearience for teachers provides a section of short articles on aspects of Shakespeare's thought and writing that will develop the subject specialist expertise of any secondary English teacher.

The chapter on assessment is directed at UK examinations but nevertheless has a lot of valuable suggestions which can be applied in any context.

An accompanying CD contains adaptable, photocopiable material from the book which will help teachers create resources and use scripts in the classroom.

Working Title is the play you have when you don’t have a play.



It is one of only a handful of plays entirely devoid of any recognizable plot. And that’s not easy to do. The characters come and go. They interrupt each other. They behave irrationally. They are funny. They are violent. Occasionally they burst into song.



So what’s going on?



Working Title is an excursion into various types, kinds and fashions of theatre. In itself it is a sort of vaudeville experience. It introduces us to



Ionesco

Brecht

Ibsen.



There are scenes here illustrating



Theatre of the Absurd

Brechtian Theatre

Musical Theatre and the

Theatre of Realism.

And all in the one play! Now there’s value for money!



Furthermore, members of the audience are right royally entertained.



As they should be.

The plot is simple ...

They meet Rosebury at the beach and from there the relationship between them develops into one where Springle and Blackburn overcome their prejudice and come to accept Rosebury and understand that he is not really that different…

Satire remains one of the most powerful means of censuring human flaws and foibles on either a societal or personal level. It incorporates wide-ranging literary and media forms and can vary in tone from light-hearted ridicule to scathing condemnation. Wrongdoing has been targeted in various ways and mediums throughout the centuries but the best satire has shown the potential to trigger positive change and reform. Criticism can be direct or inferred but absurdity can also be mocked for its own sake. Regardless of purpose and style however, audiences are typically encouraged to see values, individuals or institutions within their world through a satiric lens. It works best when it is easily recognised and grounded in reality but it need not be political or highly moral in subject matter or focus. Satire retains contemporary appeal and relevance because it continues to have the seductive potency to challenge, mock and expose what needs to be brought to public attention.



The books in the ‘Exploring Genre and Style’ series provide in-depth analysis and activities to help students evaluate, interpret and articulate their understanding of representative texts. The changing face of satire over time as well as the conventions and techniques have been examined to explore the many reasons behind the enduring popularity of satire. Recurring themes and stylistic elements are also evaluated alongside changing historical, social and literary context and shifting societal views, values and ‘norms’. The aim has been to help teachers develop student understanding, critical evaluation and the development of personal interpretation.
