Unlimited Festival artist Kaite O’Reilly and Oberon Books recently published a new collection of plays for atypical actors.
In this video interview and the accompanying blog, Kaite speaks to The British Council about why we need to push for cultural change. Her collection, Atypical Plays for Atypical Actors, includes the plays: peeling, The Almond and the Seahorse, In Water I’m Weightless, the 9 Fridas and Cosy.
Atypical Plays For Atypical Actors is the first of its kind: a collection of dramas which redefines the notion of normalcy and extends the range of what it is to be human. From monologues, to performance texts, to realist plays, these involving and subversive pieces explore disability as a portal to new experience.
