As the title suggests, the 150 games and activities in Drama Menu are organised as courses from which the drama teacher can select to create a complete drama session. It is ideal for use by teachers in drama schools, drama clubs or other situations where the emphasis is on performance.

The Appetisers are 5-10 minute lively games to warm up and focus the group. There are several well-known games such as "What Are You Doing" amongst a variety of original and lesser-known activities.

The Starters are longer and slightly more challenging activities, aiming to fire players' imaginations and to develop performance skills. The Main Courses are long (20-30 minutes) activities, leading towards performance. One of these can easily form the main body of a workshop.

There are also a small selection of Desserts which are designed as time-fillers, should there be some time left at the end.

The author is the director of a performing arts academy and has previously worked as an actor, director and writer. His knowledge and experience are apparent in his writing and this book will provide a great deal of varied and inspiring material for sessions with secondary-aged or older students, although many activities could be used with or adapted for younger age-groups.
