All the latest news on what’s happening at Deafinitely Theatre, with exclusive information on what’s coming up.
Announcement our 2015 main production
2 August 2015
I have some exciting news and I feel that now is the right time to make this announcement, which is about our next production, some of you might be aware of it already, some won’t. The title of the play is “Grounded”, as you can see in this “poster”. It’s a one-woman show. I have seen it performed by hearing cast. I thought it was so powerful as a story that I felt compelled to adapt it into a Deaf version, all in sign language.
It is the story of a woman pilot during wartime, flying a bomber aircraft; her life is abruptly changed as she becomes pregnant and has to leave service. When ready to come back, she is looking forward to return to her bomber, however she is instead assigned to a different plane and her life is turned upside down.
The performance will be shown at the Park Theatre in North London near Finsbury Park station, the theatre is really a short distance away. I can guarantee you that you will enjoy watching this play as it is so powerful, intense and intimate. It will open in October for a three-week run. I hope you’ll join us.
Deafinitely Theatre at Deaffest's 10th Anniversary
1 May 2015
I wonder if you are all as excited as we are about going to Deafest?
It’s a brilliant opportunity for deaf people from all over the world and the UK to come together, socialize and talk about theatre, art and film.
Charly Arrowsmith and I will be running workshops for children and young people. We will also be performing our children’s production of “Something Else” on the Friday. One of our regular actors Mathew Gurney will be giving a short performance on the Saturday evening, which we are very much looking forward to. Nadia will be manning the Deafinitely Theatre stall promoting our youth summer school, which will take place in Derby for a week and London for a week. We hope to see many of you getting involved! Come and say hi to Nadia at the stall and keep an eye out for me and Charly- we are looking forward to meeting you there.
