Something to Say: Three new radio plays by disabled writers

15 - 29 Nov 2021 (Past)

Written by and starring disabled people, and featuring disabled characters, these plays amplify disabled people’s voices, which are seldom heard in radio drama. We hope that your organisation, your members, or anyone else associated with you, will enjoy listening to these plays.

The Premorial by Jen McGregor

Jammed by Gabriella Sloss

Bronagh & the Bum Goblin by Áine King

The plays are 15 minutes long each

“As development of the play scripts took place throughout 2021, we realised that one of the threads connecting each story was that they were each about characters with hidden disabilities – when the experience of being disabled is not apparent by looking at the person. This felt particularly relevant, because Something to Say was conceived as a development opportunity aiming to give visibility to disabled writers and characters, whose voices are seldom-heard within radio drama.”
