Aiming for Sainthood
Written and Performed by Arlene Malinowski
Directed by Will Rogers
When her Deaf mother gets cancer, a middle-aged daughter moves back into her childhood room with two questions:
Where is God?
Who took my Springsteen poster?
Following the success of her solo show What Does The Sun Sound Like?, Fresh Squeezed premieres the second installment in Arlene’s autobiographical trilogy. Arlene’s acclaimed solo shows have played to sold out houses and standing ovations throughout the country.
These stories are about the hilarious, heartbreaking, heartwarming, totally true tales of a hearing prodigal daughter growing up in a Deaf family and culture. It is the tale of a girl/woman surviving and interpreting sound for her parents while interpreting the world for herself. They are the tales of being a cultural tourist, bridging a world of two languages and two cultures and the universal search for identity.
Funny, touching and poignant, these theater pieces are told through both sign language & voice, using both Deaf and hearing storytelling/theatrical techniques which challenge audiences to share a world beyond their experiences.
Aiming for Sainthood is a project of Victory Gardens Theater Fresh Squeezed and The Access Project Crip Slam Series. Aiming for Sainthood was originally commissioned and workshopped by 16th Street Theater in Berwyn with further workshop development by Chicago Dramatists, Millennium Park and the Chicago Department of Chicago of Cultural Affairs.
