Fix: A Play Provocation and Workshop for Young Audiences is by Alex Bulmer in residency with Theatre Centre UK. Written to be received in the ears, rather than seen with the eyes, the play is intended to be recorded and played to an audience using surround sound technology. The play explores disability, access, and artists as a young woman navigates London’s underground while trying to reach an audition in post-Olympics, austerity-driven London. This play draws on Bulmer’s experience as an actor, director, and playwright formerly based in the UK where she was deeply involved both with Graeae Theatre, an inclusive disability theatre company, and the 2012 London Cultural Olympiad and its Unlimited program. The workshop associated with the play encourages youth audiences to think about the social model of disability in relation to the kinds of barriers that disabled people face in terms of training, arts access, and mobility. Creatively addressing the broader themes of this issue, Fix was first produced by London UK’s Theatre Centre in March 2015.
