The ASL Shakespeare Project Brings Us Twelfth Night, Fully Translated Into American Sign Language
Source: ASL Shakespeare Project

This project began in 1999 at Yale University. A team of four people, two deaf, and two hearing, came together to translate Shakespeares Twelfth Night into ASL. This core team was later joined by other Deaf performers.

It took over a year to translate and videotape the full play. Then the translation was produced by the Amaryllis Theater in Philadelphia. This website is dedicated to those artists who promote and develop ASL in the arts. We hope you enjoy it.
