Actions Speak Louder
Than Words

by Richard Kwietniowski

Six deaf performers--three women, three men--are brought together to devise
staged pieces on the intersection of gay and deaf cultures, and the highly
politicized nature of both. The result is a diverse, assertive collage,
ranging from advice on how to seduce a librarian (in silence, of course), to
the importance of short hair in visibly proclaiming one's lesbianism and
deafness. Also included is an essential beginner's guide to sexual signing.
