ASL and Visual Adaptation by Dawn Jani Birley
Ravi Jain’s remixed, reimagined, and bilingual Prince Hamlet features a cross-cultural, gender-bent cast—challenging traditional ideas of who can tell this story. Interweaving Shakespeare’s spoken text with heightened and poetic American Sign Language, this groundbreaking production creates a visually stunning retelling for both hearing and Deaf audiences. You’ve never experienced Hamlet like this before.
