The documentary covers the rehearsal period for Deafinitely Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, which was performed at Shakespeare's Globe in London in June 2014. Here, director Cathy Heffernan and producer Louis Neethling explain how their film aims to capture how the company translated Shakespeare's Old English into British Sign Language. We also see clips from the editing room.
