DEAFIA is a full length stage play. Written by Deaf Playwright/Director
Douglas Ray Kennedy.
1930’s Chicago Mafia has their sinister claws around the necks of the Deaf
Community. Innocent deaf people are framed for crimes they never did. And
the Mafia rakes in $$ millions $$ in fraudulent insurance claims. The Mafia
laugh all the way to the bank.
The frightened Deaf Community decide not to accept defeat and bad images of
themselves. They don’t get mad… They GET EVEN!!!!
Who will play GLORIA, Deaf Bookkeeper who has just moved to Chicago to work
as a bookkeeper? The Mafia demands she works for them as their
bookkeeper/business manager…. Why?
So that when they are arrested by the FBI, they will blame it all on poor
