It's a Wonderful World
This performance told the personal stories of the actors, adults with developmental disabilities, shared their hopes and dreams, and how they felt about having a disability. This innovative play was developed using a research technique called ethnodrama, and the process was part of a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The participant actors were co-researchers in this process and collaborated in all aspects of the play's creation. Documentaries about the creation of this play have been developed for use in schools and professional conferences.
