Last Chance to See Deafinitely Theatre’s ‘The Promise’

A new play by the UK’s only professional deaf-led theatre company completes its world premiere tour at the Lyric Hammersmith in London this month.

Deafinitely Theatre is acclaimed for producing high-quality bilingual theatre for deaf and hearing audiences, by combining British Sign Language with the English spoken word.


Its latest production ‘The Promise’ by Paula Garfield and Melissa Mostyn is inspired by the extraordinary experiences of deaf people living with dementia.

Rita is really confused.

She can’t understand why the deaf education system she’s tirelessly championed throughout her teaching career is getting worse and worse, or why there is only one care home in the whole of England that looks after people in her language. On the Isle of Wight. 

She’s also confused about where her family is, and why she can’t remember where the milk goes… 


‘The Promise’ is at Lyric Hammersmith until May 11(including a Chilled Environment Performance on May 8 at 2.45pm).
