"Police Deaf Near Far" is an innovative and provocative examination of the deaf community's interaction with law enforcement. Produced by TerpTheatre in cooperation with Oakland University's Department of Music, Theatre & Dance, the story focuses on a deaf activist trying to reconcile his devotion to his community and his feelings for a sign language interpreter. Called a "super-complex" play, TerpTheatre's unique creation features a cast of students training for careers in theater and two professional deaf actors, which offers them an opportunity to explore together the difficulties faced by both law enforcement officers and members of the deaf community in situations like the one portrayed in the play. Host Barton Bund speaks with TerpTheatre co-founder Dan MacDougall about "Police Deaf Near Far," which runs through Sunday, Oct. 14 in the Varner Studio Theatre on the campus of OU in Rochester.
