Join Kaite and guests at the book launch of her acclaimed The ‘d’ Monologues, celebrating International Disability Day, and relishing all the possibilities of human variety. 

From biting satire to crip' pride, observational comedy to poignant revelations of life in contemporary Britain and beyond, these texts challenge and subvert ingrained preconceptions of difference and disability, relishing all the possibilities of human variety.

An atypical body of work - solo, choral and ensemeble monologues for D/deaf and disabled performers, inspired by lived experience. 

“I absolutely loved these plays…. brilliant… profound…. The lyrical and collective voice of disability experience in these plays make me proud to be part of this remarkable community.” 

Carrie Sandahl. Scholar, activist. 

“This extraordinary piece of written art is an emotional rollercoaster of raw pain, humour and resilience…. This is a book for anyone who treasures the diversity of the world.” 

Jenny Sealey CEO/Artistic Director Graeae Theatre.

A project supported by Unlimited with funding from Arts Council Wales.
