How to Teach a Play provides a new generation of teachers with the tools to develop their students’ performative imagination. Grounded in scholarship, each teaching exercise will call attention to the performance elements of a specific play and show how the performative can illuminate the thematic meaning of the script. The collection will consist of exercises that connect close textual analysis with performance.
