On September 15th, Cornish will present CODA, an original play written and performed by Mark Murray and directed by Lindsey Leonard, both current students. CODA is “a coming-of-age story exploring the boundaries between the deaf and hearing worlds through solo performance and a combination of sign language and spoken English”. A new addition for the performance is an American Sign Language Interpreter, who will translate the performance on the 15th.
In order to reach out to the community through this play, Murray worked persistently with his Senior Thesis professors and Student Affairs Program Coordinator Cheryl Coatney to rally the Theater department to schedule interpretation services, a resource which was not originally available for the performance. “this [is] a wonderful example of creative synergy here at Cornish”, said Richard E.T. White, Murray’s department Chair.
