It was a long and winding road to get here, but Kathryn Zoerb's (of the OP production of The Winter's Tale put on by Baltimore Shakespeare Factory - you may remember them) recommendation for a podcast finally came through (thanks Kathryn!). I sat down with Toby Mulford, Rachel Spicknall Mulford and Kaiylah Watts to take about commedia del arte (and how Italians say all the vowels), remembering how plays used to be performed and what that can bring to a show, translations, multi-lingualism, and access. Faction of Fools is a resident of Gallaudet University's Eastman Studio Theatre and a major component of their work is full access for the deaf and hearing impaired by creatively integrating American Sign Language into the fabric of the show itself, a topic that I hope to take up soon in a later podcast. In fact, a transcript of this show will be appearing in the near future, I will keep you updated.
In the mean time, catch up with Kathryn, Toby, Rachel, and Kaiylah as the PWYC preview of The Miser is on Thursday, June 2nd with the show up it's run on Friday, June 3rd. You can find the dates here, as well as many other things Faction of Fools and of course, you can buy tickets to The Miser here. Follow Faction of Fools on Twitter and Facebook (and follow Gwen Grastorf on Twitter as well, she's tons of fun).
