Orlando Shakespeare Theater will be mounting a full-length production of Ellen McLaughlin's new "translation" of Shakespeare's Pericles (and the above photo is from our first staged reading of it, at PlayFest 2015 in Orlando!) It's incredibly exciting to be working on this new theatrical undertaking, and I am honoured to be a part of such a controversial and important discussion in the theatre world.
Our cast had an incredible experience working with sign language interpreters from Florida's Hands and Voices! We performed two shows for deaf and hearing impaired patrons with our ASL "Shadows"/Actors, and it was truly magical and moving!
Special thanks to Mandy Longo, Anne Hering, and Jennifer Bonner for coordinating!
