Crips Without Constraints: A Play

Crips Without Constraints: A Play

Part of Streamdoor: theatre you can watch from home

“Commissioned by Graeae, eleven Deaf and disabled writers create one monologue each written in isolation. One will be released every Monday from 20 Apr.”

Overview

Plays is a collaboration with acclaimed screenwriter, playwright and Graeae patron Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and The Cursed Child – Sonia Freedman, His Dark Materials BBC/HBO, Let The Right One In – National Theatre of Scotland/ Royal Court) alongside Graeae’s New Writing Department. It is supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

Shortly after the UK government announced a complete lockdown in the UK, Graeae commissioned eleven Deaf and disabled writers to create one monologue each written in isolation. Some took on the current crisis directly, others eschewed the pandemic in favour of something completely different. Each work, however, is a bold and brilliant response to the challenge. With writing from Khush Chahal, Adam Fenton, gobscure, Kathryn Golding, Raji Gopalakrishnan, Jamie Hale, Daisy Higman, Ink Asher Hemp, Shahid Iqbal Khan, Anita Kelly, and Hannah Treadaway, the collection represents the finest new diverse talent from across the UK.

Each monologue is read to camera by a Deaf or disabled actor and is introduced by Jack Thorne. The monologues, which will be captioned, and audio described, will be streamed every Monday, kicking off on Monday 20 April with Flesh by Graeae Write to Play graduate Anita Kelly.
