The Wooster Group has consistently challenged audiences and critics alike with their extraordinary performance works, many of which are now recognised as ‘classics’ of the contemporary stage.

The Wooster Group Work Book accesses, often for the first time, the company’s rehearsal methods and source materials, as well as the creative thinking and reflections of director Elizabeth LeCompte and her main artistic collaborators. Focusing on six performance pieces, Frank Dell’s the Temptation of St. Antony (1987), Brace Up! (1990), Fish Story (1994), House/Lights (1999) and To You, the Birdie! (Phèdre) (2002), this new volume gathers together an astonishing range of archival material to produce a vivid and personal account of how the company makes its work.

This book’s intricate layering of journal extracts, actors’ notes, stage designs, drawings, performance texts, rehearsal transcriptions, stage-managers’ logs and stunning photographs traces a unique documentary path across the practice of the Wooster Group, one that will be an indispensable resource for all those with an interest in contemporary performance and its impact on contemporary culture.

Highly accessible to the student, scholar, theatre-goer and practitioner, and including three contextualizing essays by Andrew Quick, this book offers a series of remarkable insights into the working practices of one of the world’s leading performance companies.

The Wooster Group is a New York City-based experimental theater company known for creating numerous original dramatic works. It gradually emerged from Richard Schechner's The Performance Group (1967–1980) during the period from 1975 to 1980, and took its name in 1980; the independent productions of 1975–1980 are retroactively attributed to the Group. The ensemble is directed by Elizabeth LeCompte and has launched the careers of many actors, including founding member Willem Dafoe

Wooster Group director Elizabeth LeCompte describes how the framing device applied to Chekhov's Three Sisters in Brace Up! and Fish Story drew on a documentary about an itinerant troupe of traditional Japanese geinin performers reduced to putting on ropey productions for tourists. The device echoed Donna Sierra and the del Fuegos dance troupe in LSD and the vagabond magicians in Frank Dell's The Temptation of St Antony
