Here’s what some of our customers say:
The DramaWorks practical commentaries on plays and practitioners have been uniquely valuable in my twenty years of teaching secondary drama. Jeni brings both a highly informed mind and extremely practical insights which help busy teachers to lift the text of a play off the page for students, offering interesting alternative approaches to key sequences and helpful design options. Her practical guides to a whole range of theatre practitioners are also exceptionally useful and, crucially, work well in the classroom.
Dominic Bell, The Leys School, Cambridge.
May I take this opportunity to express how valuable ALL of your resources are for schools. I am a keen practitioner in Artaud, Brecht and Grotowski and often tire of the basic activities and unclear strategies other writers forward for these three in particular. Instead I constantly research and re-develop activities to challenge students in the way the practitioner intended. However, your guides and teaching resources are incredible. They have depth in the action of the classroom/studio, not just in the drama school and theoretical enthusiast.

Over a number of years I have used a range of DramaWorks practitioner and text resources with KS4 and KS5 students and have found them to be very practical and user-friendly. They include a wide range of creative approaches which students have used to very good effect in their practical work and written examination responses. I would recommend them unreservedly.
Paul Neale, Drama Subject Leader at Queen Mary’s High School, Walsall.
Jeni’s books are brilliant: useful, informative and inspiring. She sheds light on challenging scripts by outlining their historical context and a range of effective direction possibilities, rendering the text immediately and powerfully accessible. I hope she continues to write more!
Sarah Ullman, Drama lecturer from South Thames College.
I accidentally stumbled across DRAMAWORKS several years ago and have been hugely grateful ever since that I did! I have used everything from DRAMA PLANS and DEVISING SKILLS to PRACTITIONERS and UNDERSTANDING TEXTS. Jeni’s superb resources have been a huge support and inspiration to my teaching.
