In 1972 the Deaf community came together at a time when they were institutionalised and marginalised in their first act of political awakening to protest the shooting dead of Eamonn  McDevitt by the British Army.

Working collaboratively for the first time at Tiger Dublin Fringe, this performance goes back to look  forward to the recognition of ISL and the rights of Deaf people.
