    check this out, written by David Chadderton http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practical-Drama-Secrets-Revealed-Studymates/product-reviews/1842850822/ref=sr_1_1_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

    here is a review
    This review is from: Practical Drama: The Secrets of Theatre Arts Revealed (Studymates) (Paperback)Practical Drama: The Secrets of Theatre Arts Revealed.
    This is a great, easy and friendly read. As a professional Actor I find David Chaddertons book a Brilliant study aid that you can keep as a constent reference, for beginners or like myself; to re-energise those skills needed to succeed in the Industry.

    Chadderton also wriote this book http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Theatre-Makers-Extraordinary-Studymates/dp/1842850830/ref=sr_1_fkmr2_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354294937&sr=1-1-fkmr2
    and again got a great review

    The Theatre Makers: How Seven great artists shaped the modern theatre: Seven Extraordinary People Profiled (Studymates in Focus) (Paperback)[/b]Having taught Theatre Studies & GCSE drama for over 5 years and also being a freelance Actor/Director I have found many uses for David Chadderton's expertly written and accessible book.

    Not only does Chadderton go into enough background information on the main theatre practitioners that have shaped and revolutionised the industry we know, but gives plenty of easy to set up and work through practical exercises based on each of the 'Theatre Makers' theories.

    For a one stop shop resource on Konstantin Stanislavski, Edward Gordon Craig, Antonin Artaud, Bertolt Brecht, Jerzy Grotowski, Peter Brook, Augusto Boal, then you really can't go wrong with this book. I have thumbed the pages so many times creating lesson plans and workshops and have recommended to so many colleagues, that I can safely recommend this book to you all.</td></tr></table>
