Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, is the world’s only university designed to be barrier-free for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. For more than 150 years, its students have been performing Shakespeare without spoken words. During October 2016, the Folger’s nationwide First Folio tour was at Gallaudet, which also had a companion exhibition called “First Folio: Eyes on Shakespeare,” curated by a Gallaudet English professor and Gallaudet’s Museum Director. Educators can access a podcast that tours the exhibition and the world of Shakespeare in sign language. Listen on SoundCloud, iTunes, or Google Play; or download and read the transcript.
