Join us for a table read of Paul David Power’s play in development, Crippled. Dramaturgy by Robert Chafe.

Crippled explores themes of seen and unseen disabilities, sexuality and loss. It is based on real life experiences from playwright Paul David Power who lives with a disability.

The reading will be followed by a community discussion about the representation of person’s with a disability in the Atlantic Region’s theatre scene. For more information on the project visit http://www.paulpower.ca/crippled

The panelists are:

LeeAnne Poole (Festival Director – Atlantic Fringe Festival)
Josh Dunn (performer/comedian)

Moderator: Ryan Delehanty, Assignment Editor – Accessible Media Inc.

This evening is focused on linking members of both our arts and disabled community to share views about the piece as well as how we can all work together to promote and demand diversity and inclusion on and of stages in the Atlantic Region.

The development of Crippled is possible thanks to support from the Canada Council for the Arts. This event is made possible thanks to support from the Bus Stop Theatre Co-op.
