NextStop Theatre Company in Herndon, VA is currently producing a unique production of William Shakespeare's "Richard III" that stard Ethan Sinnott (Program Director for Theatre at Gallaudet University) as one of the most brilliant and devilish villains in all of theatre.

This production will feature three deaf actors (among a cast of 13) and utilize ASL as an important tool in the storytelling. We are re-imagining Richard as a Deaf man rising to supreme power in a unsympathetic hearing world. For more information about this production, I encourage you to go to our website at
