“Second only to Lady Gregory, Deevy was a prominent Abbey Theatre dramatist of the 1930s. In recent times Jonathan Bank of the Mint Theatre in New York has presented three of Deevy’s full length plays to great acclaim. For the first time in the history of Oregon State, this production will be “shadowed” by interpreters using American Sign Language. Deevy herself was profoundly deaf and could lip read in three languages. For every speaking actor there is an interpreting actor using ASL, who is also in period costume. Long a dream of  both Jo Alexander and Charlotte Headrick, professor of Theatre Arts, to produce a totally shadowed  production, The King of Spain’s Daughter will be a unique experience for both hearing and non-hearing audiences. Alexander is a nationally certified sign language interpreter who manages accommodations at Oregon State University for students, faculty, staff, and visitors who have a hearing loss. Headrick has a special research interest in Irish drama by women and has directed several collegiate American premieres of Irish plays at Oregon State and across the United States. She is widely published in the field of Irish Drama.” -OSU News Release
