Om boka

Widely studied, frequently staged-verbatim theatre is everywhere. In this new book, Mark Wheeller, the author of verbatim hits Too Much Punch for Judy, Hard to Swallow, Missing Dan Nolan and Game Over, and the most performed living playwrights in the UK, takes a personal journey through the form, and demystifies the making process.



For Mark, his verbatim theatre journey all began with a man called Graham Salmon - the world's fastest blind runner.



Verbatim: The Fun of Making Theatre Seriously is a perfect handbook for teachers, educators, students and anyone interested in the creative process.

Mark Wheeller began writing whilst a student at Marlwood Comprehensive School, Bristol.


After teaching drama for thirty-six years he retired in July 2015 to concentrate on writing and delivering Drama/Theatre workshops to students and teachers across the world.


Mark is one of the most-performed playwrights in Britain. Too Much Punch For Judy has been performed over 6,000 times and Chicken nearly 6,000. Missing Dan Nolan and Hard to Swallow are both set texts for the GSCE Drama 9-1 exams. His work has been a staple part of the Drama curriculum both in the UK and abroad for the past three decades.


Professional productions of Hard to Swallow, I Love You Mum, I Promise I Won't Die and Chicken regularly tour schools and many of Mark's works are available on DVD, with digital formats forthcoming in late 2020.


His study guides include Drama Schemes, The Story Behind Too Much Punch For Judy, Drama Club & Hard to Swallow - Easy to Digest.
