HTY’s Groundbreaking ‘Can You Hear My Hands’ Invites Hearing Audiences into the Deaf Community

Visual poetry explodes this fall as a company of deaf and hearing actors bring a dynamic world of gesture, expression, humor and language to the Honolulu Theatre for Youth stage.

Chevy, a renowned deaf performer and musician, and sign interpreter Michele Morris take the audience through a one hour journey into the world of deaf culture, where they’ll learn a little sign language, listen to fascinating stories about the experience of being deaf and laugh and “sing” along with the performers.

Set and props design is by Jennifer Eccles; lighting design is by Brian Shevelenko; costume designers are Rose and Carlynn Wolfe; sound designer is Paul James Prendergast.

Can You Hear My Hands, created by Ed Chevy and the HTY Company, opens Friday, October 14 at 7 p.m., then plays Saturdays, October 15, 22 and Nov. 5, 12 at 4:30 p.m.

Can You Hear My Hands will be performed at Tenney Theatre on the grounds of The Cathedral of St. Andrew. It is ideal for ages 8 and up. Single tickets are $20 for adults, and $10 for youth (18 and under) and $15 for seniors (over 60).
