The Abbey Theatre is proud to welcome WillFredd Theatre’s multi-award winning debut production FOLLOW which explores stories from the Irish Deaf Community.
Shane’s parents are Deaf. He grew up in a house with doorbell lights and subtitles on the TV. A house where to be heard, you had to be seen.
Using sound, light, Irish Sign Language and performance in a unique and playful way, FOLLOW is a one man show that captivates from start to finish.
Co-created with Jack Cawley and Shane O’Reilly.
Winner of Spirit of the Fringe, Dublin Fringe Festival 2011.
FOLLOW is fully accessible for a Deaf and Hard of hearing audience.
‘Every journey to the theatre commences in hope (too often dashed) – here it is totally justified. *****’ – Irish Theatre Magazine
‘The Sign of a masterpiece’ – Sunday Independent
FOLLOW is performed in Irish Sign Language and is also captioned.
