The work of Augusto Boal has had a tremendous impact on contemporary theatre. This volume looks at the scope of Boal's career - from his early work as a playwright and director in Sao Paulo in the 1950s, to the development of his groundbreaking manifesto in the 1970s for a 'Theatre of the Oppressed'. Augusto Boal will be fascinating reading for anyone interested in the role that theatre can play in stimulating social and personal change. This useful study combines:

a biographical and historical overview of Boal's career as theatre practitioner and director
in-depth analysis of Boal's classic text on radical theatre, The Theatre of the Oppressed
exploration of training and production techniques
practical guidance to Boal's workshop methods.
