DramaWorks is UNIQUE in its approach.

DramaWorks is a small publishing business dedicated entirely to teaching resources about theatre and drama. Most of these feed into the examination syllabus requirements for GCSE and for the higher exam levels [all sixth form level drama exams] though there are also lesson plans for years 7, 8 and 9 [ages 11-14] and general work on Devising and on Physical Theatre, which are suitable for use at many levels.

You will find these, and work on Practitioners, plus detailed work on set texts, under Teaching Resources. Plays published for performance in schools and youth theatres are to be found under the Playshare Scheme.

Calling all Drama teachers! You only have two more months to buy resources from Dramaworks, closing on June 13th 2024.

From now until June 13th 2024, all resources will be only £40.00 (excluding plays which remain at the same price). Enjoy!

All the plays will be continuing and available on a new site called Plays for Student Performance, which will open as soon as the Dramaworks website is gone. More plays from teachers please! Send them digitally to [email protected] (I’m retaining my email address) or by post to Jeni Whittaker, 2 College Wood, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 8NB.

Styletasters 1 [Stanislavski, Artaud, Grotowski], Brecht Through Practice and Devising Skills for £10 each!

Just before I opened the digital branch of Dramaworks, I ordered several hundred more hard-back file copies of Styletasters 1 [Stanislavski, Artaud, Grotowski], Brecht Through Practice and Devising Skills, because I was running low on these three. Though some were bought, most teachers flew happily to the Digital Store with the result that I have loads of these left over. It would break my heart to take them to the tip, which I must do if there are any left on June 13th. I can assuage this a little by offering them at £10.00 each [to cover postage] just to ease my heart. They’d make great permanent resources for your drama cupboard and would make me happy, not to mention avoid such a terrible waste.

DramaWorks will be closing on 13th June 2024

DramaWorks is coming close to the end of its time. On June 13th 2024 Digital Theatre will have bought the rights to the digital content of DramaWorks and this website will cease to exist.

Thereafter there will be no more hard copies either. Digital copies only will be available from DT+. If you haven’t been able to afford to join DT the next few months are the LAST CHANCE to buy my resources. Look at the volume of the content and make sure you are not left without.

Please note that I do have some hard copies still so watch the website for offers. I still have considerable numbers of some hard copies and am considering offering them at a very reduced price so that I am not left with huge numbers that would have to be destroyed after that June 2024 date.

About DramaWorks

Jeni Whittaker understands the problems facing students, who need to translate visual and practical experience into written form.

Every important theory of each practitioner is made uniquely accessible and tested through practice.

Drama Through Practice

‘Through Practice’ is the byword to everything DramaWorks produces. This means that every exercise is tried and tested and WORKS.

The practical testing of theory is key to understanding and remembering.
