Three coming-of-age stories, united in a struggle against violence, ignorance and oppression.

Helen, Alan, and Graham are told they are impaired and need fixing. Connecting through a shared past they are transported to one pivotal moment in 1880 when a dangerous ideology was born: one that would impair the way the world views Deaf people for over a century.

Ad Infinitum combine the company's signature style of physical storytelling with the beauty of British Sign Language in an unmissable feast for the senses.

  • “Ad Infinitum is different. It is a theatre company that refuses to be put in a box”

  • “The show is masterful”
