Product Description

Product Description

No Labels Monday to Friday

There is no such thing as challenging behaviour, only creative behaviour.

Five dramatic episodes tell the story of the fictional No Labels Drama Group. Meet the cast and share in their journey, as they dispense with the Learning Disability label and teach us through drama and comedy that labels are for tins not for people. These stories are poignant, funny and based on real experience. An insight into the world of marginalised people and a tribute to their strength and humour.


For Learning Disability Week 2012 a free episode is offered each day. Collect the full set.
Monday – Are you sitting comfortably?
Tuesday – The play’s the thing.
Wednesday – Politics is rubbish.
Thursday – Fairy cakes or cup cakes?
Friday – The Recycled Musical

More About the Author

Cally Phillips (1963-) has had a writing career spanning 20 years. Stage plays and screenworks formed the bulk of her professional career, and she has been broadcast on BBC and ITV as well as on radio. She was dramatist in residence in Dumfries and Galloway 2002-2004 as well as holding other residencies and facilitation posts. She was founding director of Bamboo Grove Theatre Company from 2002 -2006.

She is in the process of publishing her back catalogue of stage plays for ebook format through HoAmPresst Publishing. She also publishes 'advocacy' work through the Guerrilla Midgie Press imprint including A WEEK WITH NO LABELS(2012)

She has also written short stories in Scots including the collections IT WISNAE ME and VOICES IN MA HEID.

Latterly novels have taken precedence in her writing portfolio. Her first novel THE THREADS OF TIME (2003) was followed by ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE (2007) and BRAND LOYALTY (2010) continues her unique and individualistic contribution to the literary genre. She is currently working on several adaptations from her stage works and a new 'trilogy in four parts'.

It has been said that Cally 'thinks her way through life' and certainly her writing reflects this characteristic. It is idioscyncratic, challenging, open and revealing, exploring difficult concepts such as identity and the nature of reality, employing a range of literary styles but engaging the reader through compellingly believable characters and stories that keep you thinking long after the final page.

Cally Phillips is currently the editor of Indie eBook Review, a site which peer reviews the work of 'indie' writers and she is director of the Edinburgh eBook Festival which is held in August each year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginning a conversation 24 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No labels on monday introduces us to the members of the no labels drama group - briefly, respectfully and with affection. There is no need for more than a couple of sentences about each person as they soon begin to speak for themselves. And that includes even the members of the group who find speech particularly difficult. The writer guys herself slightly as the earnest narrator and facilitator, Kate, anxiously trying to arrive at some sort of definition of learning difficulty. Most of the time the group members remain silent as she flounders along, mentally castigating herself for inadvertant moments of possible insensitivity. But finally, rather brilliantly, she achieves an idea that the difference between those labelled with 'learning difficulty' and those called 'normal' is a 'conversational impairment betweenboth parties. This is perhaps the most useful understanding of learning difficulty (which also includes dementia) that i have ever come across. I look forward to the next in this week long series.

These are 5 episodes chronicling the work of a fictional drama group (called No Labels) which are based on real work done by the author in collaboration with a beguiling, attractive, varied bunch of people tagged with the label 'learning disability'. It's a great read - funny, entertaining, but also thought-provoking in the best sense of the word. With each wee adventure, it gently challenges your perceptions of people, labels, and the values on which our society SEEMS TO run. I've just finished reading it and the characters are all still vivid for me. I know they'll stay that way for a long time, too.
