A day of performance and provocation, aimed at inspiring theatre-makers to think, and act differently around disability and inclusion.
The New Wolsey Theatre is committed to increasing access and visibility of Deaf and disabled people throughout the Industry – in audiences, on stages, behind the scenes and in programming and planning. This day will be an opportunity to share experiences and learning, open up conversations, network and, of course, see exemplary work in the field. You may even get lunch!
The event will be chaired by New Wolsey Agent For Change Jamie Beddard, and will include speakers Sarah Holmes, (New Wolsey Chief Executive), Amy Nettleton (New Wolsey Agent For Change), Charlotte Bevan (National Theatre Casting Director) and disabled actor and activist Simon Startin.
We end the day at the theatre with music from New Wolsey Theatre favourite Rockin’ Paddy (aka John Kelly) of Reasons To Be Cheerful and The Threepenny Opera fame!
