Afterthought - Where Is The Interpreter?

Commissioned by Derby Theatre
Digital Events , Accessible Performances
Friday 3 December 2021 - Thursday 31 March 2022

Afterthought was inspired by the incredible work of the 'Where Is The Interpreter?' campaign, which was established during the Covid19 pandemic in response to the systemic neglect of the Deaf Community during vital governmental briefings in England.

Everything you see and hear in Afterthought is true.
This happened.
This is happening.
We cannot allow it to happen any more.
