Two by Twain

Two by Twain

Two by Twain is a visit to the antics of the McWilliamses at home and on vacation. Join Mark Twain’s infamous couple, Mortimer and Evangeline, as they face the comedy of superstitions in Mrs. McWilliams and the Lightning. In The Experience of the McWilliamses, watch how a child’s simple cough can turn the whole household topsy-turvy. We, too, have a bit of the McWilliams in our own relationships, and create calamity out of the calm! (Adults and Family)


 

It's in the Bag

What's in the bag? Discover a mystery story, fables, tangram puzzles, improvisations, and much more! Starting with Knowing the Ropes, NTD challenges our actors to crate shapes, twists and turns with ropes to teach signs. Have fun with the National Theatre of the Deaf as we combine visually exciting American Sign Language with the Spoken Word to create a performance that will be seen, heard, and long-remembered!

A Show of Hands

See the National Theatre of the Deaf explore American Sign Language from behind the curtain—literally! Concealed behind a slotted curtain, actors poke their hands out in Hand Puppets to create scenery, tell stories, make jokes, and teach American Sign Language. Following the introduction, enjoy poems, stories, fables, and improvisation that delights all ages!

A Show of Hands comes in Version A: the original show, and Version B: featuring the McWilliamses.
