For children from 7 to 13, here is a treasure chest of excerpts from a rich and exciting variety of sources. Scenes and monologues come from such plays and films as The Diary of Anne Frank, Brighton Beach Memoirs, and The Secret Garden; and most appropriately, from writings by children themselves. Edited by a faculty member of the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute's Young People's Program in New York, the collection reflects Kerry Muir's years of experience teaching and directing young people and her keen sense of the kind of dramatic material that inspires and motivates them to learn and grow creatively -- to explore their imaginations and to build on their own experiences and emotions. Ideal for regular classroom use as well as for drama school programmes.
