Title: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: bulekingfisher on 18 May 2022 09:22PM
I have been thinking about a stage play to get  the govt thinking very serously about disabled people + it would sybalisy every bridge in LONDON barricade every bridge  so the country could not trade (import/export to the rest of the World so holding the country  the country to economic hostage so wheelchair user's + people on crutch's can claim responsiblty to been history maker's we ccan demanned full inter-gration in to main stream society with DIGNETY


Could people let me know thier view's on this idea ?

Post by: Sunny Clouds on 18 May 2022 09:57PM
I'd enjoy a play like that, but I don't think it would motivate the government and I don't think it would do much to motivate those that don't already campaign, because they probably wouldn't  turn up for it.

So from my perspective, as a play, yes; as a way of changing government views, no.

That being said, as you know, I'm cynical.  I think the only way of persuading our Tory government to improve things for disabled people would be to convince it that improving our lives would (1) save money for the state/taxpayer; (2) make more money for their friends; (2) win them votes; (4) not leave them without some useful scapegoats for divide-and-rule policies.

Maybe I could chill you both by giving you a smile about a different, silly sort of spelling problem?

I touch type, but problems with fingers drooping a bit, especially when tired, means I make lots of typos but usually correct them even before I see them on screen or very rapidly after I see them.  On my last three keyboards, I wore out the backspace key before all the rest.  As I typed that last sentence, I made around six or eight errors I immediately corrected.

But occasionally that doesn't work, and I caused much (friendly) amusement on another site when I had a mild concussion and wasn't able to correct as I typed.

My most common error is for fingers to droop as I type, so I finish a word 'lyk' for 'ly'.

Let's see if I can type without correcting (I'm not faking it)

Sotif aI type andt trtyonot to  batckspact wegten I matke at nmauistake...

So my typing's as mad as my brain, but for physical reasons.

Bule, just to clarify - you weren't planning an actual barricade of the bridges, rather a representation of this within the play?

(I say this because of the hostility towards groups like Extinction Rebellion and Insulate Britain when they really disrupt the normal running of things - you need people to be onside)

Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 21 May 2022 11:24PM
I don't know much about finding a theatre, but there's a community drama group where I live that uses places other than theatres, like pubs and colleges and community centres.

I also know a musician who performs at a theatre run on a not-for-profit community basis where they do dramas etc.  You can reach a really wide audience without having to find what I'll call a standard profit-making theatre, which makes it cheaper to put on a production.

Also, with Youtube, zoom etc., if you're trying to get a message across rather than making a profit, you can reach lots of people.

But whilst I know the theory of that, I've never put on a drama, so if you're putting one together, you need someone who's got the initiative and connections to actually do it.
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 21 May 2022 11:30PM
Further thoughts, and I'm not offended if the idea doesn't work.  Might it work as a piss-take on an existing drama/known story?  That might make it stick in people's minds.  I think the sort of people you want to get the message across to wouldn't bother watching a play they thought was just 'woke' but might watch what they expect to be a comedy.

Random example of how it might get a message across.  Scene in which a wheelchair user glues their wheelchair to the road on the bridge, then wails they can't afford to repair it.  Maybe mentioning how if you hurt your foot gluing it to something, dressings are affordable or if push comes to shove, A&E will fix your foot for free, but if you damage your wheels, which are your feet, they're expensive to fix, and the NHS won't do it, and your disability benefits certainly won't cover it, not being as much as people think.

A few disabled people meeting + discousioning their frustion's in a coffee shop + joking about putting thier  dream's in a radical student newspaper as young people will fight for a novalty  + the under dog plus we have a lot of wheelchair pudher's who can help cructh user's a title for the movement is WE WILL WIN WITH WHEEL'S + WALKER'S   6 W's
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 23 May 2022 09:55PM
I'd visualise it working with absurdities all the way through, for instance, in the coffee shop, having the meeting near the doorway because there's no ramp, so a couple of the group are stuck outside.

I was visualissing a cafe in a railway station so the entrance was on same level as the platform + the door was wide enough for a wide wheelchair + the loud speaker did not interupt the convasation on tacte's for the 6 W's + there was plenty of communtions all over the country so all nation wide group's of disabled people were informed to each other
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 24 May 2022 10:48AM
I don't object to that.  I was just thinking that sometimes there are messages you can get across obliquely.

Would it be worth some offhand comment by a character as to how it makes a change to find a place they can all get in?  Or even a firm statement that that café is accessible, so why aren't so many places?

How serious do you want the play?

Hello SUNNY cLOUD'S


As it would be impossible for most disabled people to get to London + barracade bridge's so as there is a BBC studio in most city's so we could do a virtual blockade of every bridge in London + prevent all import + export's to show the govt how serious we are to become more intergrated in to the scoiety we were born in to we are not outcast's (we do not have to go around ringing a bell 9 shouting unclean)
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 24 May 2022 09:08PM
I think the idea has lots of potential, but I'm having trouble imagining how you're going to portray blocking the bridges. 

Are you picturing it as having a storyline with some sort of 'closure' at the end, whether surprise or not, or are you picturing it more like a revue with short sketches?

I've never tried to write drama so don't know where to begin, but I'm keen to chip in what I can if I've an idea what's wanted.

If this is a radio drama then we do not have to phyiscal block any bridge it will be in every one's imagantion (some thing like H.G Wells story War of the World's)

Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 25 May 2022 01:21PM
I understand that if it's a radio drama, it's in people's imaginations.

But personally, I still don't understand whether you've got any storyline or want suggestions.  I don't understand whether it's a single plot/storyline drama or more like a revue/sketches/vignettes.  I still don't understand how serious or lighthearted you want it.  I still don't understand how far you want to get disability issues across as blunt statements to the audience, or subtly, or through humour or asides.

Perhaps others will understand rather better than me what's wanted.  Let's see what others say.

YES I would like surgestions to help polish my idea's I just put a rough idea forward I have tried to start this idea by saying a conversation between a few impaired friends in a coffee shop in a railway station which is on the same level as the platform (easy access there  is a public transport system to get to the station the coffee + cake prices are reasonable. The access to the 2 disabilty accessable toilets is clear + they are cleaned on a daily bacis. We could also start discussing getting teams of voluntary wheelchair pushers to fulfill intergration in to main stream society

Sorry about my mistake. But  it might be an idea for all disabled people in a city/town to go in to the local BBC studio + a big problem would be a group of the public would activly pick us up b+ move  us so the traffic could flow over the brudge's so the police would have to remain in uniform (not plain clouth's the T.V camra's would have to focus on face's. British Rail would be streched gettung wheel's on the under-ground will be a nightmare because (mealy mouthed platidude's) would show London transport for what it is (head's will roll ++ the whole of scoiety will be exposed it might not be the industral revolution but it will turn scoiety up-side down + inside out

Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 27 May 2022 11:30PM
So like a story that shows a storyline of a well-planned successful demo that changes things?  So shows disabled people as positive, determined activists, and also prompts people to think things like "Why should they need to campaign to achieve this? They should get it anyway."

Personally, whilst I think the right to campaign is essential for democracy, campaigns achieve their aims in different ways.  As I see it, campaigns that are about seriously annoying people don't achieve very much unless they're the sort of annoying campaigns that trigger a revolution or potential revolution, which may be needed politically sometimes; but there are also campaigns that are meant to be just annoying enough to capture people's attention so they listen, and to generate support for a cause and embarass those in power into doing something.

So it seems to me that your idea for a radio show could be like one of those campaigns - draws people's attention so they support the cause.

So I now see why you want the opening scene to seem well-organised.  It's "This is what it's like if disabled people have what they should like ramps and accessible toilets, and see how they're organised, and collectively strong." 

There's something I'd like, though, but you don't have to agree with me.  I saw something beautiful in a news item about a big political demonstration in Hong Kong.  The road was full of demonstrators then an ambulance came with its sirens, and they let it past, then closed the road again with the mass of bodies.

Could there be something in the demonstration where they discuss how to block the bridge or something but how to make sure they don't block emergency or essential crossings?  Or maybe have a scene where they're demonstrating but they pause to help someone.  It doesn't matter who or how.  Strong demonstrators but not nasty.

Over to you.

Sorry for the interuption I've just been mopping my bedroom floor + bathroom on daily basic's we will let emurgance vechiel's through we have to think protester's on crutch's or people with sight problem's ect been knocked over in the crush (excitment)  as well as fighting for intergration we need fair play writting in to LAW so our achivements are not lost over future genaration's
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 28 May 2022 10:56AM
Whilst I agree that we need fair play written into law, personally I don't think we'll get more than token gestures from the Tories, and Starmer's Labour seems to be like Blair's Labour, in that you get some bits of fair play written into law but people don't realise what isn't.

So I think that the most important thing is getting public support, not just in an attempt to change the law, but more importantly where the politicians let us down, in an attempt to change everyday attitudes.

I reached the conclusion that personally I'm not a good example of what a disabled person can be because I gave up on so much, then I found my outlets which are demos (which is why your play interests me - it could prompt other disabled people and what, in many areas of campaigning for equality, are called 'allies', to demonstrate) and in explaining things online, and being open and honest with people where I live, including children, about how the system is counter-productive.

My favourite form of 'demonstration' actually maps onto an everyday similarity with what you say about taking care that people on crutches etc. don't get knocked over on a demo - I love to lead a 'rearrangement' of people on a bus.  Someone gets on and needs a priority seat.  People look round - some care, some don't.  I assess how to move people round so everyone's still got a suitable seat, so no one loses by moving.  My favourite is to offer to sit on the bottom of the stairs.

If the play shows people thinking how to keep fellow protesters and people nearby safe with simple adjustments, it could send a powerful message - 'adjustments' don't have to be a pain in the neck.

Have you any ideas yet about how  many people might be on the demo and how they'd be contacted/rallied?  Disability websites & clubs?  Community groups?  Round here we also put signs on lampposts for demos. 

I wish I was briefer and skilled at this sort of thing.  I'm hoping other Ouchers will join in.  How would you feel if I asked other disabled people I know if they might be interested in contributing?  I won't give them the details of this messageboard unless you're ok with it.

Sorry that was so long.

Following on from the ideas you and Sunny have discussed around demonstrating, I will try and put my thinking cap on and see if I can add to this storyline at all.

I think it would last longer than 20/30 minutes if we start with an explosive beginning maybe a kidnapping attempt on the PM + a storming of parilment with the surport of all opperstion groups this will get the attention of the genral public then tell  the frustation's of margnlised disabled people who have been registerd witth disabilty registerd groups for over one year this will block any extremist indervidual/ group trying to give us a bad name.

Would it seem too daft to tie the PM up and sling him across a couple of wheelchairs?

I have an image of the people storming parliament all using their strengths.

What if a small group of disabled MPs and Peers took over their respective houses?  They could be backed up and cheered on by those of their colleagues that have other social disadvantages or have experienced them.

Post by: Sunny Clouds on 03 Jun 2022 07:40PM
Here's where I find it difficult.  I hope I don't sound too negative.

On the one hand, I'd like it if it was like the Archers, but for a long term thing you'd need someone senior in the BBC or whoever else you want to broadcast it  to think "Hey, the listeners would like that!"

I'm not convinced that they'd do that, particularly at the moment.

An alternative that some people would use, would be to do it online, but you need someone who does that sort of thing and I've no connections. 

On the other hand, if initially there was a one-off drama, which would act to test out audience reaction, and, if people liked it, act as a first episode, I think that might attract interest from people who'd make and broadcast a serial.

So maybe what's needed is a plot for a single drama, but some proposed, simple storylines for future episodes.

Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 03 Jun 2022 11:15PM
So does the play end with the prime minister carried away strapped to a wheelchair?  That would be a good ending.  For a one-off play, it would be the classic doom ending, and for the start of a series it would be an opportunity to see what comes next.

So there's a group of disabled people, they meet in a café and plan a demo.  Is it possible the demo they plan isn't intended to end up with seizing the prime minister, it was just supposed to be noisy and getting the message across, but by the end of the play, it's gone all the way?

You'd need larger numbers of people. Word of the original demo spreading?  Or what if, by coincidence, it turned out there were some other demos on the same day, maybe an anniversary of something?

So the wheelies & wobblies set out and bump into the deafies, and then a bit later, find themselves uniting with the mad'uns etc?

Over to you. 

I've been struggling in lots of ways, but things like this give me a sense that whether this play ever gets aired, getting the word out about disability rights really matters, so it's worth a try to come up with a play.

I think those sound really good ideas.

With the flag thing, I'm remembering my student days when students climbed up onto the roof of the university I was at and hung a banner off it, and I'm thinking about people who do graffiti high up on buildings.  Maybe a deaf person and a manic person could put some deaf flags up and spread word.  To begin with, they could be driven from place to place by a fast-driving motability car driver, and then disabled allies could join in, seeing it as a graffiti-type challenge, or maybe even doing lots of wall murals of the symbol.

I really like the idea of using murals and street art to help get the issues across.


If you wanted to pick a specific day for the one off play to be set in, how about the day that the Equality Act was passed? We could focus on how little has actually been achieved in real terms since then and how most companies pay lip service to accessibility needs of all types.


We could dress the PM in disguise and make him attend (in an old wheelchair) medical appointments and PIP assessments with disabled people so he sees first hand how people are treated and spoken to, and just how complicated arranging transport can be on a limited budget when you have access needs.


So that's just a few thoughts off the top of my head......

I just don't make a noise about it.

I think we each do it in different ways.  Mostly I do it by attending demonstrations, writing to politicians and key figures, and spreading information to people who aren't aware of some or a lot of what disabled people are up against.  That includes disabled people who, by luck or whatever, get their benefits and help with no difficulty and don't realise how much unfairness there is in the system.

So whilst I think it's a great idea to use a drama for disability awareness raising, and whilst from my own life I know how frustrating it is if you want people to join you in a project and it's not their thing, I hope, Bule, you won't think the worse of Ouchers who don't feel they've anything to contribute.

For my own part, I've never written or produced a drama and I hope that suggestions I make are realistic.  I shan't be offended if my suggestions turn out not to be what's wanted.

Actually I did ask you something on page one of this thread but it might have been missed?

(and please take on board what Lankou and Sunny have just said - your way is not necessarily everyone else's way, and that's fine.  But try not to get annoyed with others because they might not be as interested and as passionate as you over a particular idea)

That sounds like a lovely plan.

Lavender makes me think of my mother, who loved it.  I don't find sunflowers very physically attractive, but somehow they're symbolic for me of future and hope.

I want to hear what response you get from the BBC.  I don't know whether to think they'll take up the idea.  I can't work out what they are willing to spend money on these days.

It may be difficult to get them interested because of cuts, but you never know, so it's worth a try?

I never touched the key board I was going to say I try writting to one of the red top newswpaper's + they might have more luck contacting radio York but it is to good an idea to give up on
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 12 Jun 2022 08:42PM
I've got my fingers crossed.

If Radio York isn't interested, and just playing with ideas, would it be worth seeing whether there's a disability theatre/drama group in your general area that might be interested in doing something, and which would have the 'connections' in the drama 'industry' to find an outlet for it?

If that idea doesn't appeal to you, just ignore it.

I hope you don't have to try too many places to find someone interested in taking up your idea.

I have just wrote vto Radio York after talking to one of the surport workers here at the care home + U have a lot of trust in here + theb idea of kidnapping the P.M + barracaidddding every bridge in to0 Londom was a bit to extreme + would turn the public against us so I've dropped those 2 ideas but kept the idea vof flying flags with the international reconised Disablty symbol blue parkijng badge from every council/public building inculding BUCKINHAM PLACE
Title: Re: LONDON BRIDGE'S
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 19 Jun 2022 06:35PM
For Buckingham Palace, maybe there could be pressure from a veteran's group or charity.

The flags elsewhere would be an opportunity to show disabled people doing stuff as teams.  What about a rebel councillor somewhere, helped by a friend or partner, also disabled but differently, hoisting a flag out of a council room window?  Or that sort of thing.
