It was a collaboration of different acts from different plays throughout the past 10 years. In between each scene, they would show clips from different scenes of different things. Some of them were clips or pictures of the cast members practicing; some were clips of someone from the Deaf community explaining their experiences in theatre; some were clips from news events of happenings in the Deaf community.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
