The Drama Desk will host a panel titled "Expanding the Discourse: Is the Landscape of Theater Changing for Artists With Disabilities?" on November 12 from 6:30pm to 8pm at Ripley-Grier Studios.

The event will be an informal discussion led almost entirely by working artists with disabilities, who will share anecdotes, work stories, and insight on their experience in the industry, as well as suggest best practices for journalists and critics to keep in mind when writing about people with disabilities.

The panel will be moderated by Cost of Living star Katy Sullivan, and participants include Christine Bruno (former staff member of the Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts), Shannon DeVido (Teenage Dick), Stephanie Gould (Orange Is the New Black), John Christopher Jones (The Iceman Cometh), Gregg Mozgala (Teenage Dick), Jamie Sanders (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at Kansas City Repertory Theatre), and Ali Stroker (Oklahoma!).

There is no charge for this event. Reservations may be made by emailing [email protected] with the subject line "November panel."
