At Alexander Communications we understand that the British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation of the performance is as complex an endeavour as the translation of the dramatic text, and requires an equivalent level of skill and engagement. Our approach recognises that theatre interpretation is a highly specialised setting and our work aims to improve the artistic quality of BSL interpreted theatre.

Our interpreters understand the particular disciplines of translating and interpreting for the theatre, and recognise the rigour with which the BSL interpreted performance must be treated, in order to maintain the overall artistic values of the production for every audience member.

Next - 'Happy Days'




“the days go by, certain days, go quite by, the bell goes, and little or nothing said, little or nothing done. That is the danger. To be guarded against.”
Winnie is stuck. Buried in a wilderness of scorched earth she survives the everyday with fragments of babbling optimism. But she has her armoury, the lipstick, the mirror and the bag.

From his cave her husband Willie hides in the shadows, as they both await the inevitable bell to ring in another happy day.
