    8.00pm - 9.20pmRoxburgh Hall Theatre, Stowe School, Stowe MK18 5EH

    About the event

    Venue: Roxburgh Theatre

    Helen, Alan, and Graham are told they are impaired and need fixing. Connecting through a shared past they are transported to one pivotal moment in 1880 when a dangerous ideology was born: one that would impair the way the world views Deaf people for over a century. Ad Infinitum combine the company’s signature style of physical storytelling with the beauty of  British Sign Language in an unmissable feast for the senses. Extraordinary Wall of Silence is a bilingual performance in BSL and English.

    Running time: 1 hour 20 mins no interval

    Age rating: 14+

    Please read our Ticket Refund Policy before booking
