Tinted 2020

Tinted offers a valuable and necessary window into these lived experiences, highlighting especially the problematic nature of consent in this context. I genuinely hope this piece continues to grow and has the future life it deserves.”

Tinted is a revolutionary one woman monologue addressing the #metoo movement from the perspective of a woman living with a visual impairment. Written by Amy Bethan Evans, it ran for a week at the Vaults Festival in 2020.

Staged as accessibly as possible and written by disabled playwright Amy Bethan Evans (Libby’s Eyes, BBC Access Room, Kudos Fellowship shortlist and producer of Access Platform) Tinted is the debut full-length monologue from Scripped Up, championing D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent writers.

“Director Elske Waite shows a high level of control over the play’s various timelines, pushing the emotional strength of the play at just the right moments.”
