Deafinitely Theatre is the UK’s leading deaf theatre company. Established in 2002 by Artistic Director and co-founder, Paula Garfield, it produces bilingual theatre in BSL and spoken English. This means the company’s work can be understood by both deaf and hearing audiences together while retaining BSL as the leading language throughout.
Deafinitely’s vision is a world where deaf people are a valued part of the national theatre landscape, recognised for the excellence of their work. The company aims to build a bridge between deaf and hearing worlds by showing plays to both groups as one audience. Its productions set out to correct misconceptions about the deaf world, as well as correcting deaf people’s misconceptions of the hearing one.
Now booking, CONTRACTIONS by Mike Bartlett and directed by Paula Garfield, is a dark comedy about faceless corporations, nameless management and the boundaries between work and play.
Audiences queued in the street for return tickets to see Deafinitely’s sold-out premiere, Deaf History, at the Gate Theatre in London in 2002 and many more productions followed at London theatres and on National tour.
This latest production is not to be missed!
CONTRACTIONS: 1-29th November 2017, ND2, 1 Triton Square, Regent’s Place, NW1 3HG.
