An inspirational sourcebook of innovative techniques for creating theatre, with contributions from experienced playwrights, directors, performers, teachers, dramaturgs, artistic directors and founders.

Editor Caridad Svich has gathered forty-one essays from admired theatre professionals in response to a call to write about 'artistic innovation'. Each of them shares the creative challenges and triumphs of developing original works for today's stages.

'With intelligence, thoughtfulness, rigor and wit, author after author offer their considered take on the subject, unlocking new perspectives, unearthing old ones, and in general, doing what artists do best when they are walking on ground they trust and among colleagues who are not sitting before them in continual and sometimes stultifying judgment--and that is, open our eyes, hearts and minds again.' Caridad Svich, from the Introduction
