Blog: "Tip Toeing Through.." : Crippled
by Julie Brocklehurst (Jan 21, 2017)
- LIFE AFTER DEATH. In late September 2013, playwright Paul David Power’s life changed forever when his same sex partner of nine years passed away suddenly. Nearly four years later, Power is bringing that experience to the stage in his new play called “Crippled” – debuting at the Resource Centre for the Arts in St. John’s NL on February 7 2018.
- MAKING THEATRE MORE ACCESSIBLE. The producers are using the debut of Crippled to bring accessibility to theatre to a new level in the province. The show will include ASL interpretation, audio description, a relaxed performance and increased space for mobility devices during its run.
- STRENGTHENING DIVERSITY ON OUR PROVINCIAL STAGES. Crippled is written by and about a person living with a physical disability. It's a new work taking place in the Atlantic Region which assists in putting diversity in the spotlight. People who live with a disability need to see their stories on stage - an opportunity that is severely lacking in Newfoundland and Labrador. The more shows like “Crippled” are supported and proven to be financially successful – the more likely similar shows, characters and stories will make it to our provincial stages.
