Shakespeare In Sign Language
This is a great idea. Not only is a Shakespeare play going to be performed in British Sign Language, which is great progress in itself, but even better, BSL has been seen for this as a ‘translation’ rather than a ‘reasonable adjustment’- it has been included on a long list with all kinds of other ‘foreign’ languages that the plays will be performed in. This is something that speakers of BSL really want to see happen everywhere. I thank the Globe for recognising this and doing it so well.
