Graeae’s Crips with Chips scratch night accepting submissions from deaf and disabled writers

Graeae’s Crips with Chips is a scratch night putting Deaf and disabled writers centre-stage. Every other month, Graeae will be presenting four script-in-hand readings of new work at their award-winning and fully accessible Bradbury Studios in East London. All work will be captioned and will be audio described at a later date.

The next Crips with Chips will take place on Monday 20 April from 7pm. If you identify as Deaf and/or disabled, they would like to invite you to write a 10-20 minute play responding to the topic of ‘eugenics’. Eugenics is the hateful idea that the human race could be ‘improved’ by ‘breeding out’ disease, disabilities and other ‘undesirable’ characteristics.

Requirements:
  • Writers who identify as Deaf and/or disabled
  • Plays must respond directly to the topic of eugenics
  • Plays must not have been performed elsewhere
  • A maximum of three actors
  • Graeae will cast the actors
How to apply?

Submit your application by email to josh@graeae.org or by post to Josh Elliott, Graeae Theatre Company, Bradbury Studios, 138 Kingsland Rd, London E2 8DY

If you are selected, you will receive £116 on the understanding that you will attend both the half-day workshop on your piece and the scratch night on Monday, 20 April 2020.
