Written by Anna Wood-Jacobowitz and produced by Nikolya Sereda, Deafenstein follows two deaf brothers directing the titular film adaptation of Frankenstein. In their version, the Doctor brings a deaf Creature back to life and tries to restore its hearing, unknowingly creating a new companion for his wife Mabel. As secrets develop in the Doctor’s basement, the brothers increasingly disagree on the core message of the story.


NTD has provided over 50+ years of innovative productions and training for aspiring Deaf talent in theatre and the arts using American Sign Language (ASL). NTD is a theater group composed of deaf and hearing actors who entertain audiences worldwide through signed and spoken languages.
