Written & Performed by Laura Anne Harris
Directed by Krystal Osborne
When Laura moved from Toronto to Syracuse, New York, she wasn’t expecting to be residing in Trump’s America.
Gaining her first job as a relay operator for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing causes her to question whether she can discover the hidden humanity of the American people. Destiny, USA weaves together three stories: Laura moving to the US for the first time and working as a relay operator for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, romantically meeting her husband, and dealing with her mother’s illness in Canada while she has to live in America. All are told through storytelling and poetry.
While this is mainly autobiographical, some details have been changed to protect the anonymity of the Deaf callers.
