This work constructs a unified theory of educational theatre and suggests ways in which that theory may apply to everything from curriculum to educational theatre design. Part One investigates learning theories and suggests that educational theatre might be a nearly perfect paradigm for those theories. Part Two offers a sample curriculum and what that curriculum requires of the theatre facility. While supporting the possibility that a minority of students might achieve a career in theatre, it stresses the reality that most will not. Preparing this majority - through theatre education - for a broader array of futures requires a reassessment of goals and resources.
