First time at hearing impaired theatre production. The creative use of the small stage with limited set backdrops was very well implemented. The actors made you feel the action and emotions so clearly! They say body language is everything, and they're right. Signing is very expressive in itself. Everything was beautifully executed...except the intermission. When everyone filed out to the lobby, including the actors- having not read the play,, we thought the performance had ended. It would have been helpful to the nom-impaired audience members, had there been an autidory announcement for the intermission and bar. It was accidental that we didn't leave for the evening.
