Graeae is a force for change in world-class theatre, placing D/deaf and disabled actors centre stage and challenging preconceptions.

A Work in Progress contains the full script of Reasons to be Cheerful, a brief history of the company, analysis and extracts from their previous shows, memories of Graeae from previous collaborators, including Jack Thorne, Jo Clifford, Kaite O’Reilly and Jonathan Meth, and a host of images.

‘Graeae are not just a unique and groundbreaking theatre company; they are an institution, an inspiration to the entire industry. This overdue testimony of their work is a glorious read.’ Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre

‘Graeae has always been a company in which radicalism and mischief have walked cheek by jowl. It’s a pleasure to see four decades of theatre celebrated.’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
