These unique and inspiring texts are solo, choral and ensemble monologues for D/deaf and disabled performers, inspired by lived experience.

This unique collection of fictional dramatic monologues was written specifically for D/deaf and disabled performers (the 'd' of the title), informed by lived experience. But the 'd' could just as easily refer to difference, diversity, defiance, determination, desirability and a host of other delicious 'd's….

Covering a wide variety of form, content, and theatrical styles, the monologues offer fresh perspectives on difference and disability from across the UK and beyond. From biting satire to crip' pride, observational comedy to poignant revelations of life in contemporary Britain and beyond, these texts challenge and subvert ingrained preconceptions of disability and celebrate all the possibilities of human variety.

Phillip Zarrilli is the founding Artistic Director of The Llanarth Group. Recent performances include The Beckett Project at the Malta Arts Festival 1–10 July 2012 with performances of Happy Days, Ohio Impromptu, Act Without Words I, Rockaby; Play with Gaitkrash at the Cork Opera House (March 2012); The Echo Chamber (co-created with Kaite O'Reilly, Peader Kirk and Ian Morgan) at Chapter Arts Centre (Cardiff, January, 2012); and Told By The Wind (premiere 2010 in Cardiff, touring to Berlin, Wroclaw, Chicago, and continuing on tour). Zarrilli is noted for his development of a psychophysical approach to acting using Asian martial arts and yoga. He is author of Psychophysical Acting: An Intercultural Approach After Stanislavski (2009), which received the 2010 ATHE Outstanding Book of the Year Award.
