***Comes with a full set of improvisation cards to use in any improvisation session

The Improvisation Book takes you step-by-step, session-by-session through a graded series of improvisation exercises. Starting with the very first class, it adds a new element at each stage until even the most inhibited students have gained a full vocabulary of improvisational techniques.

‘a veritable treasure trove… Abbott’s book is of real value in the training of actors; I’m enthused and excited about putting it into practice’

‘distils a lifetime of experience and is set out logically and practically so that would-be actors can build skills from the very simple to the remarkably complex’
British Theatre Guide
