Dame Harriet Walter, Mandy Colleran, Naomi Wirthner, Sharon D. Clarke and Julie Graham are amongst the cast to feature in our new short plays.
The bold and brilliant plays are written by five disabled writers, all alumni from Graeae’s Write to Play programme, covering topics from sibling rivalry to death by post stick notes. Additionally, the pieces will all be directed by upcoming disabled directors.
Each play will be released online every Tuesday at midday from 19 January until 16 February 2021, all pieces will be captioned and audio described.
Combined with these plays, every Thursday from 21 January, Graeae will release a short, filmed conversation with Deaf artists in British Sign Language, discussing in more detail the themes from that weeks’ play.
