Book description:

"A galvanizing and brilliantly inclusive act of political theatre"— Scotsman Highly acclaimed at the Edinburgh Festival, this bold and confrontational play about disabilities is a radical piece of theatre that unsettles, challenges, and changes perceptions of people with disabilities. "This left me on edge, ruffled, my well-brought-up liberal nerve ends feeling as if they'd been scarified with emery boards. I fell asleep, hours later, still inwardly debating the issues raised—and I woke, next morning, mind seething and a bit on the defensive side. Why? Because D.A.R.E. (Disabled Anarchists' Revolutionary Enclave) puts me—puts us all—on the spot. It challenges the nature of our feelings towards the disabled and it exposes us to their anger...They're not interested in the kind of condescending patronage that masquerades as sympathetic concern. They're no longer willing to deny sexual desires to spare our blushes, no longer willing to stay silent when science declares it has found ways—involving DNA screening and genetic engineering—preventing them from being born"—Mary Brennan, The Herald
