R+J: THE VINEYARD
R+J: THE VINEYARD is set in 1890's Martha's Vineyard where a unique deaf/hearing bilingual agricultural community gave way to a budding tourism industry. Intense cultural lines are drawn between hearing and non-hearing as land, lifestyle, and livelihoods ignite the Capulet and Montague families. This beautiful and physical production is both spoken and performed in American Sign Language and intended for all audiences.
In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the ADA, Red Theater will also commit to Open Captioning nights for each production going forward with the goal of expanding to touch tours and ASL interpreters when possible.
ABOUT RED THEATER
Red Theater started as a defiant act towards university administration in 2008 and has expanded to include five theater collectives in cities across America. Today, their commitment to defiant work and diverse voices has led them to adopt a Free Theater model focused on dangerous theater that’s accessible to all.
