Fill Our Mouths
by Lauren Feldman
Developed and presented as a staged reading by Oregon Shakespeare Festival, as part of FAIR Expressions; presented as a staged reading by New Georges, and the recipient of the Drama League New Director/New Works Grant.
Evan and Chap are two young women who meet in the streets of Paris: one is hearing: the other is hard of hearing. Their relationship grows and starts to change everything they thought they knew – themselves, their language, their loved ones, and the world around them. Using spoken English and American Sign Language, Fill Our Mouths is a story of love and choice, deafness and hearing, the trials of communication, and the search for self when caught between two worlds.
