For exams from 2009 onwards.
This study guide has been fully revised in line with the new AS Specification. There is plenty of advice on how to prepare for the new course, with help and support for both the practical and written units.
A reference chapter details theatrical terms and concepts for students to refer to with confidence in their essays, together with an illustrated explanation of the common staging forms, which will be helpful for Unit 1’s focus on examining live theatre and working on a set play from an actor’s, director’s or designer’s approach.
The text concludes with a perceptive and detailed section on practitioners and mentors. Students will find this helpful in developing an understanding of those figures’ work and ideas during the course, and essential when preparing the practical unit.
Students are provided with thorough information on the content of the new units and exam criteria to help them gain a better grade.
