Royal Association for Deaf people mark the end of the Deaf Detectives project with the launch of ‘Gone, But Not Forgotten’ at the Mercury Theatre

On Wednesday 16th January 2019, the Royal Association for Deaf people (RAD) invited members of the Deaf Community and students from St. Clere’s School to the launch of ‘Gone, But Not Forgotten’ at the Mercury Theatre in Colchester.

‘Gone, But Not Forgotten’, a play about RAD’s founder George Crouch, is one of a number of resources created as part of the Deaf Detectives project to bring Deaf history to life.

The wonderful actors, Sahera Khan and Will Lewis gave an emotional introduction to the life of George Crouch that was felt by the entire audience.

Amanda Casson-Webb, Co-CEO, Royal Association for Deaf people said ‘The play really highlighted the huge impact this humble family man has had on the lives of so many Deaf people. George Crouch’s legacy ensures that RAD continues to empower Deaf people today and into the future.’

The play will now go out on the road and a video will be made available online soon.

RAD would like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for supporting the Deaf Detectives project through National Lottery funding.
