Thanks, Jo Caird, Yes, Disability Belongs on the Main Stage

Jo Caird writes about theater in the UK. She recently wrote the following:

There are plenty of reasons to champion disability theatre and the inclusion of deaf and disabled artists in mainstream theatre practice. From the importance of equality of access to artistic professions; to the benefits that involvement in the arts can bring to deaf and disabled people; to the fact that wider audiences are currently missing out on the wealth of talent within the UK's disability arts community because so little of this work and so few of these artists ever break into the mainstream: as far as I'm concerned, it's a no-brainer.
