In attempting to answer the question ‘How is disability represented in plays?’ two approaches are considered, one semiotic and literary and the other concerned with notions of stereotyping drawn from disability studies.

Pilot study data drawn from students’ work in examinations are offered to suggest possible answers to those questions.
