|Abstract||Greater public participation in planning has long been a goal for planning professionals. In practice what often takes place is the dreaded community consultation process. There is often a gulf between a communitys enthusiasm and creativity on the one hand and the strictures of the statutory planning process on the other. This article reports on a performance-based project which explored issues of representation and legitimacy in participatory planning. The use of theatre to investigate participatory planning has proved to be a powerful tool which has sparked enthusiasm, interest and imagination.
