Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, is the world’s only university designed to be barrier-free for deaf and hard of hearing students. For more than 150 years, its students have been performing Shakespeare without spoken words. During October 2016, the Folger’s nationwide First Folio tour is at Gallaudet, which also has a companion exhibition "First Folio: Eyes on Shakespeare," curated by Jill Bradbury, a Gallaudet English professor, and Gallaudet Museum Director Meredith Peruzzi. In this podcast Bradbury talks to Neva Grant and gives a tour of the exhibition and of the world of Shakespeare in sign language.
