This book is the winner of the 2008 American Alliance for Theatre and Education Distinguished Book Award.

David Diamond’s work has been an inspiration to performers, artists, community leaders throughout Canada and beyond. The ideas in Theatre for Living are large, daring, challenging, but the steps by which Diamond follows and implements the ideas are precise and accessible. As I read, I found myself being taken further and further into the life that is both theatre and the making of theatre, which is to say I was led into how life can be given its meaning.
