Playwright Aditi Kapil deftly weaves together the classic “Ugly Duckling” fairy tale with the story of a deaf child born into a hearing family. Performed simultaneously in American Sign Language and English, it offers a warm and insightful look at how one family bridges deaf and hearing cultures.

Originally produced by Mixed Blood in 2005 and revived in 2009, “The Deaf Duckling” again features both deaf and hearing actors in the cast of three. David Baughman and James Gardner join returning cast member Erin McGovern under the direction of playwright Kapil.

The event is free and open to the public.
