Crips with Chips at home

Graeae’s Crips with Chips AT HOME

Thinking outside the boxset from 8pm…

Our accessible scratch night is back! Join us online for an hour of LIVE entertainment from 8pm – 9pm on Tuesday 20th April.

We asked five Deaf and disabled writers for short plays responding to a randomly assigned TV genre. And we can’t wait to share what they’ve come up with!

We’re delighted to announce that the evening will be hosted by star of stage and screen Sharon D. Clarke (most recently seen in The Gift for Crips without Constraints) alongside playwright Leanna Benjamin (writer of The Gift), with work presented from some of the finest writing talent from across the UK: Amy Bethan Evans, Adam Fenton, Kathryn Golding 金頁, Kate Lovell and Nicole Joseph. 

The work will be read by professional actors Melody Brown, Amelia Cavallo, Evlyne Oyedokun, Racheal Tse and Bea Webster and directed by Cheryl Martin, Nickie Miles-Wildin and
Naomi Wirthner.

So put your chips in the oven and let Netflix ask if you’re still watching. Our take on the boxset brings you everything from sci-fi to period drama, performed LIVE and script-in-hand by some of the UK’s finest Deaf and disabled actors.

The first Crips with Chips took place in person at our award-winning Bradbury Studios in February 2020. This time we’re bringing it to YOU.

Tickets are free. But if you can spare us what you might’ve paid for chips, donate to Graeae

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin…

The evening will be audio described, sign-language interpreted and captioned.

Get your chips ready! 

While we sadly can’t provide you with chips on this occasion, we’ve collated some of our favourite recipes, along with the box sets we’ve enjoyed, to help get you in the mood.  Click here to view.
