Theatre in Education emerged in the mid-sixties as a unique hybrid of performance and child-centred learning. "Contemporary Theatre in Education" charts the creation and adaptation of this 'hybrid' through the changing political, economic and educational environment. It also takes a 'snapshot' of the TIE being created today, considering all the projects being performed in Wales during a single month. The projects are analysed and every TIE director interviewed about the work and the policies of their companies. It becomes very clear that that the distinction between TIE and Children's Theatre is being blurred. Is it possible for the hybrid to survive? Or have the economics of schools, the post-National Curriculum educational philosophy and the lack of understanding from a new breed of teachers created an environment that has forced a mutation? Perhaps theatre in education has just evolved, but perhaps just forty years after it began it is facing extinction. This book will be of relevance to any who works with TIE or drama in schools as a practitioner or a teacher or. It is also an invaluable resource for any school, college or university student studying the application of theatre in a school environment.
