I just saw on bbc local news that, for the first time in the play’s 50 year history, the lead character of A Day in the Death Of Joe Egg will be played by an actor with CP. I’m afraid to say this is another one which has crept under my radar, but, according to the report, the role has always been taken by an able bodied actor, even though the character is supposed to have cerebral palsy. If so, then this news is certainly a step in the right direction, as well as giving me something else to go and check out. The report also mentioned the problem of so few actors with disabilities appearing on our stages and screens. With the actor, Storme Toolis, now drawing our attention to the issue, hopefully it can now start to be put right.
