In 1987, Brad Haseman and John O’Toole released Dramawise, a definitive text for teachers, students and drama practitioners, which shaped many classroom programs and curricula at a state, national and international level.

Dramawise Reimagined is a completely revised and updated version of that book, written with the Australian National Curriculum in mind, and aimed at all levels of secondary education and as an introduction to drama at the undergraduate level. Dramawise Reimagined reaches beyond the original concepts, offering newly challenging drama activities that reflect complex questions in today’s society.
