This episode features an interview with David James Boyd & Chad Kessler, co-creators of the play Stepchild, along with producer Kori Rushton and associate producer Shelly Guy.

 

About the play:  

Inspired by the classic tale of Cinderella, “Stepchild” tells the story of Orella, a deaf girl coming of age during the Italian Renaissance. After a mysterious fortune teller teaches her how to communicate using sign language, Orella discovers a joyous new world. Her bliss is soon shattered by the ignorant and fear-mongering King Octavio, who ruthlessly punishes anyone that dares to embrace what makes them “different.” With her kingdom rapidly succumbing to prejudicial fears, Orella must dig deep for  inner strength to combat darkness and save her people from tyranny. 

It is believed that American Sign Language (ASL) is the THIRD  most commonly used language in the United States. However, the long, grim and extraordinary path towards modern Deaf culture is hardly common knowledge.  Through the eyes of a Deaf heroine, this underrepresented historical topic is given a Gothic folktale spin in this sweeping  story of empowerment.
