    Disabled people exist under constant scrutiny as an object of fascination, stared at but rarely fully seen. Nobody wants to be caught staring at disabled people’s bodies – but once on stage, the stared at are staring back.

    The Crip Monologues is a new show from creator Jamie Hale, with individual scripts by Hayleigh Morrow, Sonera Theo Angel, Emily Brenchi, and Simone Roach. It is an invitation into the intimate narratives disabled people share with one another, an exposure of life under constant non-disabled scrutiny, and a reclamation of the power of performance and staring back at the watchers.

    Hayleigh Morrow's Ava’s Story unravels the aftermath of a kinky one-night stand under the gaze of a judgemental carer. Sonera Theo Angel's Just Short of Saintly explores the cost and compromises of navigating the world when you're not a sympathetic victim. Emily Brenchi's Mother narrates the impact of disbelief and discrimination giving birth as a disabled woman, while Simone Roach writes a captivating love letter to the beauty, heritage, and heart of the disabled community in The Moon Jellyfish.

    Supported by Arts Council and and seed commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre.
