    Abstract

    The chapter describes work done in MATCH on using forum theatre to facilitate the process of eliciting requirements from users and stakeholders concerning care technology for the domestic environment. Interactive theatre has been developed previously for requirements gathering purposes and this chapter describes how an interactive theatre exercise was developed for use with a diverse range of user groups and stakeholders. The piece was devised and produced by theatre professionals in collaboration with computer professionals with a focus on the development of home care technology to support older and disabled people. The chapter describes background to the use of theatre in this role and then, using script examples, it explains how the forum theatre exercise was used within MATCH.
