The BBC is to mark the 25th anniversary of the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) next month with a series of dramas, documentaries, news packages and discussions.
Among the month-long season will be a series of six 15-minute dramatic monologues, written, directed and performed by disabled people.
The CripTales series – curated by actor and writer Mat Fraser – will feature performances by Fraser, Jackie Hagan (in her television acting debut), Robert Softley Gale, Liz Carr, Carly Houston and Ruth Madeley.
Although fictional, the monologues are based on research and disabled people’s lived experience from the last 50 years, and will be shown next week on BBC Four (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday).
