Amy Bethan Evans

Amy is a playwright, dramaturg and disability activist originally from Bristol. She is currently on commission to the Royal Court and on attachment to the National Theatre Studio. Her plays include Libby’s Eyes (Bunker) and Tinted (Vaults) and she reads for 503 and Finborough as well as co-curating the Access Platform at Vaults 2019 and the Bierkeller’s New Writing Platforms in Bristol 2013-16.

Amy’s question: I feel like disability activism is often treated like an intersection to other activism, rather than the lens we apply first. I’m interested to see what happens when we do that and also how to make checking other kinds of privilege accessible.
