Marking International Sign Language Day 2023, Deafinitely Theatre presents a special charity fundraising performance of V’s acclaimed The Vagina Monologues in British Sign Language, spoken English and captions, directed by Paula Garfield.
Performed by a mix of 20 deaf and hearing women from all walks of life, the one-off performance will raise much-needed funds for the charity Deaf-initely Women, which provides essential services to make sure all deaf women are able to live free from abuse. 
Written 27 years ago, The Vagina Monologues is based on writer V’s “Vagina Interviews” conducted with 200 women all around the world. This collection of funny, lively and emotional monologues represents the untold experiences of women in a powerful theatrical experience, presented for the first time in a BSL performance at this scale; an unmissable celebration of womanhood and sexuality. 
On International Sign Language Day, Deafinitely Theatre is proud to be a part of this play’s legacy raising money to support the end of violence against deaf women.
