DR Vol. 12 No. 1: April 2021

At the time of publishing the last issue of Drama Research in April 2020 (Volume 11.1) the national ‘lockdown’ during the coronavirus epidemic had just begun. Who would have thought that the writing of the editorial in this issue, one year later, would also take place in the context of the continuing ‘lockdown’? Yet it does.

DR Vol. 11 No. 1: April 2020

At this time of national ‘lock down’ during the coronavirus pandemic, when the similarities to prison life resonate most strongly, it is entirely fortuitous that this issue of Drama Research publishes two articles whose focus of study is the use of Drama and Theatre with inmates in prisons: one in the UK and one in the USA.

DR Vol. 10 No. 1: April 2019

This issue of Drama Research has a distinctive international flavour as it contains three articles that report on research studies in countries other than the UK: in USA, Greece and China. Nevertheless, they each draw on reference to work originally developed in the UK.

DR Vol. 9 No. 1: April 2018

Many of the articles in this issue are concerned with the concept of transformation in different forms and by different methods. Transformation is by its nature an elusive concept to evaluate and measure; but, as it is so central to drama education – indeed, to all education – it is important that attempts are made by researchers to examine it and bring forward evidence of its occurrence.

DR Vol. 7 No. 1: April 2016

We are proud to say that in this issue of Drama Research, as well as articles from the USA and the UK, there is strong representation of research papers from the African continent: from Ghana, Zimbabwe and The Republic of South Africa. It is a rare treat to gain a wealth of insights into the work that is going on in that great continent.

DR Vol. 6 No. 1: April 2015

In this issue of Drama Research two of the five articles published here set out to research two opposite ends of the Drama/Theatre spectrum: the new world of digital media at one end; and the very old world of traditional pantomime at the other. Each article makes a convincing case for further research into the value to Drama pedagogy of their respective areas of Drama and Theatre.

DR Vol. 5 No. 1: April 2014

Dorothy Heathcote, who died on 8th October 2011, had a remarkable, crucial influence on the development of drama in education across the world. Her pioneering work with teachers and the broader community of educators and those they teach, developed a body of practice and philosophy that was innovative, radical and, at times, controversial. She was inspirational.

DR Vol. 3 No. 1: April 2012

In our last issue of Drama Research we celebrated the forthcoming award of an MBE to Dorothy Heathcote by dedicating the issue to that legendary drama practitioner. In the space of a year the context in which we find ourselves in this issue is much changed: Dorothy Heathcote did, indeed, receive her MBE award but passed away on 8th October 2011; and so in this issue we are in a position of bearing witness to her remarkable life.
