1989 The Deaf Way One
King of Hearts
Based on the French foreign film that was produced by Philippe de Broca in 1966 starring Alan Bates. Adapted and directed by J Ranelli, The National Theatre of the Deaf performed this play on national tour. The imperial German Army during the World War I boobytrapped a town in France, in which a single Scottish soldier, Charles Plumpick (Willy Conley), went on a mission to defuse the bomb from exploding. The local townspeople left, an asylum was abandoned and the insane went into the town to reside as the townspeople. When the lunatics met Charles, they crowned him as their king of hearts while he struggles to find the bomb and to defuse it. Actors: Chuck Baird, Adrian Blue, Chaz Struppman, Elena Blue, Mike Lamitola, Andy Vasnick, Sandi Inches-Vasnick, Camille Jeter, Willy Conley, John Eisner, and Marcia Tilchin.
