Geoff Gillham - Six Plays (Members) £18.99 £18.04

Geoff Gillham - Six Plays (Members) New product

Geoff Gillham - Six Plays (Members) £18.99 £18.04

This is the first ever publication of plays by Geoff Gillham, for 30 years a leading figure in Theatre in Education. The author of some 40 plays - all performed but never published - his untimely death in 2001 robbed Theatre in Education of its foremost playwright and practitioner.

Starting as the Artistic Director of the Theatre-in-Education team at the Cockpit Theatre in London, where he wrote, devised and directed memorable new plays and TIE programmes, he went on to freelance work in the UK and internationally. This invaluable collection focuses on young people’s search for their humanness through their involvement with the plays, be it as actors or audience.

Geoff Gillham’s plays are of immediate interest and relevance to today's theatre in education workers, youth leaders interested in theatre, teachers, student teachers and lecturers. Superbly crafted, they will appeal to everyone seriously interested in the education of young people through drama and theatre.
