[ DON’T KNOW SIGN LANGUAGE? USE THE CC BUTTON TO TURN ON VIDEO CAPTIONS ]
Inspired by a true story, this play explores the ongoing tensions and misunderstandings between law enforcement and the Deaf community … which sometimes leads to a fatal outcome. As the layers of the story are peeled back, the audience is lead into the Deaf world and current issues still hotly debated today — cochlear implants, residential and mainstream education, Deaf and hearing relationships, denied access to communication — and misconceptions on both sides. Deaf and hearing actors tell this gripping story for the first time on any Michigan stage. Performances October 4 – 14, 2012 at Oakland University. Ticket information available late this summer.
