Artistic Director Paula Garfield joins the The New Black Film Collective as Co-director for their performance of Signed By Shakespeare. Signed By Shakespeare is a deaf-led production of Shakespeare sonnets, scenes and soliloquies in Stratford's Theatre Square. It is part of the 400 year centenary of William Shakespeare's death and will reinterpret his work in a contemporary setting rendering it more relevant to diverse communities and young people. Sign language, mime and dance will be merged into physical theatre to make the outdoor performance particularly accessible.

Delivered by The New Black Film Collective in partnership with Deafinitely Theatre, Artistic Directors of the Future, Dandy Theatre Associates and The Hip-hop Shakespeare Company with support form Theatre Royal Stratford East.
