    This is a practical theater guide, not only for those who who hire, direct, and or act with actors who have disabilities, but it can provide valuable knowledge for anyone interested in what makes up the true nuts and bolts of live theater The true thesis of the book however is that actors with disabilities are capable of performing on stage as well as non disabled actors with sometimes little to no alteration to the stage, set, etc or the necessity of complicated adjustments to the performance itself It s a great book that artistic directors in the theater should all read In conclusion, this book provides valuable insight and information about a talented group people in the acting world who are often overlooked.

    This book is, quite simply, about how to recruit, cast, staff, produce and create professional quality fully inclusive theatre with an emphasis on working with artists with disabilities Disability theatre is all about ensuring disabled people are at the center of the creative process, and allowing disability to influence that process Stephanie Barton Farcas has written an extraordinary book about essential truths that we must all learn about what being inclusive really means in theatre and in life In her characteristic straightforward, pull no punches, cut to the chase style she lays it all out for us in plain language This book is clear, direct, matter of fact, sensitive, readable, enjoyable, humorous, inspiring, and galvanizing Stephanie tells us all the things we need to know to go beyond thinking about being inclusive, to actualizing inclusiveness in the theatrical work we all do She answers all of our questions, tells us all the things we won t think of, and her step by step explanations may lead you to exclaim, as I did, Of course That s so easy This book is truly about directing and working with ALL artists in the theatre We should handle ALL artists with this much sensitivity and awareness in all of the work we do She reminds us that we should always remain exactly this much open minded and in the moment.The case studies put us in the valuable position of thinking through an actual situation, and the companion website gives even specifics including forms and checklists and resources for GETTING IT DONE.There is accessibility in this book for everyone who reads it she has truly made a deep and practical understanding of inclusiveness accessible to all of us There is simply nothing else like this book on planet earth.Thanks for opening my eyes, Ms Farcas

    This is a major work regarding the practicalities of working with disabled theatre artists Ms Barton Farcas achievement , both in scope and detail, is remarkable This volume belongs on the shelf of any self respecting theatre professional Full Disclosure I am quoted at length in the book, but that does not impact my opinion in any way.
