For those who don’t know what the play’s about:
- it’s a drama about the relationship between a deaf woman and her teacher
- the lead female role has been played in the past by deaf actresses
- the role was specifically written for actress Phyllis Frelich, who is deaf. She would win a Tony for that role
- there is a film version of the play that earned Marlee Matlin (a deaf actress) an Oscar
If I remember correctly, there’s actually a stipulation in the original play that the role of Sarah MUST be played by a woman who is deaf or hard-of-hearing in all productions.
So, this is rad.

Stop turning celebrities into feminist icons and start turning feminist icons into celebrities.
