In this article the role of evaluation in Narrative Theatre (NT) is addressed with specific reference to participatory evaluation in exploring the effectiveness of narrative theatre training of psychosocial workers. It is argued that participatory evaluation is not only essential, in that the findings feed back into the ongoing training process, but that the process of reflection is an integral part of the broader aims of Narrative Theatre i.e., social transformation. Narrative theatre practice, as an effective tool to strengthen social fabric and facilitate social action, is best developed through a continuous participatory evaluation process within the context of organizational care and support.
