You Are My Sunshine: A Kind of Love Story
Terry Galloway spent years living in silence, until technology in the form of a cochlear implant caught up with her. You Are My Sunshine is Terrys comic, sometimes moving, sometimes profane exploration of what happened after she literally regained her senses. Sunshine has been performed nationally and internationally by Galloway whose cochlear implant six years ago allowed her to hear for the first time since she was nine. Galloway performed Sunshine in August 2016 while she was in Austin to play the role of Falstaff in Scottish Rites gender-flipped version of The Merry Wives of Windsor. This month, by popular demand, she returns to Austin with her autobiographical You Are My Sunshine.

Austin audience's praise for You Are My Sunshine

. . . incredibly moving, funny, tender, and tragic all at the same time, [providing] important perspective of what it is like to grow up with a disability to those who are privileged to have no chronic illness while reaffirming for the hearing-impaired in the audience who related to the performance on an entirely different level. -- Craig Hurwitz, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Dell Medical School, Dell Childrens Medical Center, Division of Pediatric Pain and Palliative Care

Terry investigates the controversy among the deaf community about whether deafness should be the way of life for the deaf, or if it needs to be fixed or cured.  --Dr. Kirsten Kern, PhD, LMT
As someone with hearing loss, this show was an incredible experience for me, and I think everyone should get a chance to see it.  --Sarah Appell

Its a pitch perfect event that strikes so many resonant chords. You Are My Sunshine produces moments of profound reflection, thoughtful tears and unadulterated belly laughter in the same performance. In addition its chock full of large doses of data and insight to the world of the hearing impaired person who is trying to find their place amongst disparate communities and those challenges.  --Don Brode, MD

Terry Galloway is a German-born/Texas-raised, deaf, lesbian artist and activist. As a globe-trotting, grunt-work performance artist, shes performed all four of her one-woman shows, directed by her wife Donna Marie Nudd, in a variety of venues from the American Place Theater in New York to the Zap Club in Brighton, England. When she lived in Austin, Terry was known for her cross-dressing performances at Shakespeare at Winedale and at Esthers Follies, where she was a founding member. She also co-founded Actual Lives Austin and Actual Lives Tallahassee, the writing and performance workshops for adults with disabilities. In Tallahassee, Florida shes best known as Mickee Faust, the cigar-puffing, beer-swilling evil rat (twin to a certain unctuous rodent in Orlando) who heads up the Mickee Faust Club, a theater, radio and video performance company that bills itself as community theater for the weird community.

Over her 39-year career as an alternative artist working on the theatrical fringes, she has won grants, fellowships and awards in theater, literature, radio and video from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Texas Institute of Letters, Pew Charitable Trust, Columbia University, Austins Circle of Theatres, NYCs Villager, the Kennedy Center, the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, Public Radio News Directors Incorporated and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Her articles, monologues, poems and performance texts appear in numerous anthologies about queerness, disability, theater and Elvis. Her memoir, Mean Little deaf Queer published by Beacon Press, was a Lambda Award finalist and winner of the Golden Crown Award.
