 Product Description

This book contains two of the most important plays in Deaf theatre: Sign Me Alice and Laurent Clerc: A Profile by celebrated playwright Gilbert Eastman. Hearing readers will be taken into the world of Deaf communication and Deaf readers into the experience of seeing the language of ASL and the artificial modes of Cued Speech and Signed English presented in written English for stage plays meant to be signed from beginning to end. Sign Me Alice has been the longest running hit in the Gallaudet College Theatre's history. [Gilbert Eastman; 176 pages; soft cover]

A milestone in ASL drama Sign Me Alice is an adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion and Alan Jay Lerner's My Fair Lady. Eastman's reworking is a daring satire punctuated with laughter that challenges the stigma historically attached to Deaf people and their language.

Laurent Clerc: A Profile is an emotion-packed play about the Deaf Frenchman who sacrificed his personal life to lay the foundation for Deaf education in the United States. It sensitively portrays the period when Clerc made the difficult decision to leave France and join Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet on a teaching mission that defined the landscape of Deaf education in America.
