This performance is now fully booked. Click here for upcoming talks, screenings and performances

Joseph Grigely presents a play for three voices. Grigely, who is deaf, communicates with people who do not know sign language by asking them to write things down. These inscribed notes, collected over a period of ten years and edited into a new narrative, form the basis of Blueberry Surprise. Performed by Rebecca Crankshaw, Mufrida Hayes, Raphael von Blumenthal and Phil Young.
