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