Visual Language in Twelfth Night
From the early 18th century to 1952, sign language was the shared language of part of Martha’s Vineyard. This was an inclusive community with a communal language used by all, hearing and Deaf alike. Our imagining of Illyria – the magical city of Twelfth Night - draws inspiration from here. In Illyria we welcome communication in any form: through song, dance, sign, gesture, speech. We celebrate our diversity, embrace our differences and strive for inclusion.
The Public Theater is proud to offer additional ASL interpreted performances for Twelfth Night at the Delacorte Theater, to view a calendar of additional dates to be interpreted by our Community Volunteer Interpreters please click here.
A limited number of tickets will be made available for these performances and can be acquired through our ADA Accessible Line in Central Park and by speaking to a member of our staff at our Downtown Lottery and Borough Distributions on the dates listed on the calendar.
