Review quote

"'This is an excellent resource book for anyone involved in participatory drama' Guild of Drama Adjudicators Newsletter 'It is friendly, accessible, well structured and full of good advice - much of it plain common sense... Reading it is like being in a room buzzing with relaxed and informed conversation about basic principles, and good ruses for realising both general and specific aims.' Mick Wallis, Theatre Research International 'House of Games is a book I will return to and learn much from' Dorinda Hulton, Studies in Theatre Production"
