This article reports critical reflections on the history, evolution and future of drama in education In New Zealand and Australia by two veterans of its history. Robin Pascoe and Janinka Greenwood have both been actively involved in national developments and International collaborations for over 40 years and have each played central roles in shaping international dialogues and in evolving national platforms for practice and debate. They engaged in a series of on-line dialogues and report a distillation of their discussions and emergent theorisations of community, history, place, pedagogy and evolving personhood as they are manifest through our lived experiences in the field.

In this article they report on the following related areas of (1) drama teacher education and drama curriculum implementation, (2) cross-cultural needs, doubts and possibilities in drama education and (3) the value, and perhaps danger, of diversities in knowledge and practice from international engagement.
