Show Description

In today’s culture, there are endless methods of communication. Are we truly listening to one another?

At the core of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Award-winning Children of a Lesser God, written by Tony Award-winner Mark Medoff, is a poignant story about human communication, connection and compromise.

After joining the staff at a school for the deaf, speech therapist with an unorthodox approach to education, James, played by Joshua Jackson, becomes infatuated by Sarah, a vivacious, yet delicate, deaf woman, played by Lauren Ridloff. James tries to help Sarah, a school dropout, navigate her way through the hearing world, however Sarah finds solace in her sphere of silence.

Yearning to understand each other, yet set in their ways, a romance unfolds as the two attempt to communicate their heart’s desires not only to one another, but with the world around them.
