Subject:        Deaf Shakespeare at SAA

I hope those of you coming to the SAA meeting in Cleveland will give
thought to the panel discussion by Ohio Signstage, a local troupe that
performs in American Sign Language, of their recent production of
*Comedy of Errors*.  As far as we know, this was the first full
production of a Shakespearean play by signing actors ever undertaken.
Those of us from the hearing community who saw it found it inventive,
amusing, and very interesting; the enterprise raises important
theoretical and practical issues.  The discussion, which will include a
scene from the work, is scheduled for 12 noon on Thursday 19 March; it
will involve both deaf and hearing members of the company, and will be
moderated by Marianne Evett, drama critic of The Plain Dealer.
