People Of The Eye; Play About Deafness Using British Sign Language (BSL)

Inspired by real events, this personal story follows a family finding their way through unfamiliar territory to discover their own voice.

A story about parents, sisters and the complex love that binds families together. This is a provocative piece that examines the realities of the people affected by deafness, and celebrates the beauty of sign language and Deaf culture while not shying away from the complex idea of culture verses disability. Using a mix of video projection, sound, live performance, and creative accessibility, this unique performance is about memories, feelings of isolation, and finding the joy in difference.

Accessible to D/deaf, hearing and hard of hearing audiences through the use of British Sign Language, Spoken English and Creative Captioning.

A Younger Theatre

'Extraordinary and visceral. The kind that leaves a mark'

★★★★★ Edinburgh Reporter

"The love between the two characters is palpable and you leave the piece warmed by it while questioning why society is so fussed about difference."
