'I had a night in which everything was revealed to me. 
How can I speak again?’

The early hours of the morning. You’re alone with only your thoughts. How did you get here? And how do you get out? Sarah Kane’s searing, final play in a ground-breaking production from Deafinitely Theatre.

Following its sold-out run in 2018, award-winning Deafinitely Theatre revive its celebrated bilingual production of Sarah Kane’s lyrical and haunting final play about mental health, performed in British Sign Language and spoken English for the very first time.

Deafinitely Theatre is the UK’s first deaf-launched and led theatre company, staging productions of classic and contemporary plays for deaf and hearing audiences that combine the visual storytelling of British Sign Language with the immediacy of spoken English. The company’s previous shows have been seen at the Gate, Soho and Globe theatres. Its most recent productions include 2018’s sold-out run of 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane at New Diorama Theatre and Derby Theatre and 2017’s award-winning production of Contractions by Mike Bartlett, staged in collaboration with New Diorama Theatre at ND2, winner of the 2018 Off West End Award for Best Production.
