International community development is increasingly using theatre as a tool. This article analyses this use, arguing that for theatre to be successful to support social change and development, participatory practice must be at its core. In exploring this, it looks at what affects theatre's success in supporting social change and development and what hinders its use as a tool, and offers suggestions to practitioners and supporting bodies interested in using participatory theatre.
