TRIBES Coming to Studio Theatre

November 21, 2013 in Community Events, Community News

TRIBES

Website

By Nina Raine
Directed by David Muse

“The best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring—and funniest—new play in recent years.”
The Wall Street Journal 

Billy, a deaf man whose hearing family has never listened to him, comes to define his identity on his own terms in this sophisticated drama about family, belonging, and the limitations of language.

About The Play
Billy was born deaf into a garrulous academic family who raised him to lip read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia—who’s going deaf herself—Billy decides it’s time to speak on his own terms, sending shock waves through the family. Playing out in sign language, argument, music, and mesmerizing silence, this sophisticated drama examines family, belonging, and the limitations of language.  A moving and surprising play from a rising star of the British theatre, presented in cooperation with Gallaudet University.

Press
“A smart, lively and beautifully acted new play that asks us to hear how we hear, in silence as well as in speech.” —The New York Times

“It’s the best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring – and funniest – new play in recent years.” —The Wall Street Journal

Support
Tribes is underwritten by Joan and David Maxwell.

New STAGETEXT film – “Getting More Theatre For Your Bucks”

June 25, 2013 in Community News, Hearing Loss & Deafness

 

CC_theatreLondon’s Stagetext has just launched a new film called “Getting More Theatre For Your Bucks”. It’s a wonderful resource to share with theaters and other venues when encouraging them to caption their performances.

The video shows several theatre-goers with hearing loss who talk about the experience of having captioning available.

http://youtu.be/nMzm1yvtwKU

Lissy Lovett, Programme Manager of Stagetext, says the company is hoping that more potential caption users who are hidden in existing audiences, or who have given up on theatre since experiencing a deterioration in their hearing, will see it and think “Oh, it’s people like me who are using this so maybe I’ll give it a try.”

Kudos to Lissy and Stagetext; and thanks to Collaborative for Communication Access via Captioning (CCAC) for its work to make captioning universal.
