My Mother Said I Never Should by Charlotte Keatley performed by d/Deaf and hearing cast members in Peterborough
A new production at Peterborough’s Key Theatre features d/Deaf and hearing cast members on stage together.
The term d/Deaf is used to describe those who are Deaf (sign language users) and deaf (who are hard of hearing but who have English as their first language and may lip read and/or use hearing aids).
The fingersmiths (spelt with a deliberate lower case ‘f’) theatre company have been touring their inclusive interpretations of classic plays for over five years.
