INTERVIEW: CAROLINE PARKER
The deaf actress talks about her cabaret show Signs of a Star Shaped Diva, written by Nona Shepphard and co-produced by Graeae Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Stratford East, which tours the UK through April. Carole Woddis quizzes. Recorded at Graeae.
We still get the odd disgrunted audience-member complaining that the sign-language distracts them. But I think interpreters add to the show.
