Nathan Jesper has flown in for his big talk and is desperately late. Upon arriving, he launches into his speech but things are soon found to not be what they seem.

Written and performed by Deaf performing artist Chris Dodd, Deafy blends ASL, the spoken word, and captions, to weave a tragicomedy that deals with deafness, community, and what it really means to belong.
