The handbook published by Jess Thorpe and Tashi Gore in 2019 is an unorthodox introduction to the methodology of devised theatre. The authors’ theatre-making is process is exceptional, because they present the lives and problems of young people through works that are not simply about them but are created together with them. This work focuses on practice instead of theory and may be used as a textbook. Its greatest strength, however, is that it uses pragmatic suggestions, personal experiences, and provides a map of the paths already traversed by the authors to summarise all that needs to be known about the methodology of devising.
