Theatresports™ is a form of competitive improvisation first introduced in the 1970s by Keith Johnstone. Games structures are known as ‘handles’, usually played in teams of four, with scoring based on players demonstrating technique, narrative and entertainment. Theatresports™ is an effective tool for building improvisation skills in the drama or theatre classroom. – Justin Cash
