Deborah McAndrew- Playwright

 

I was very impressed by Vanessa Brooks’ silent approach. Clearly, its application has been persuasively demonstrated in creating general audience work with actors with learning disabilities. Its applicable where a learning disabled actor is part of a piece of conventional drama in theatre, radio, television or film. Everyone working in the making of drama should see the silent approach in action and those that have the range of skills required- should then learn it.
