IC Theatre Works
 
 

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Running for nearly 900 performances on Broadway, Children of a Lesser God is based on the true story of a deaf actress and her hearing husband. Overcoming her initial wariness, James finally wins the heart of the intriguing Sarah. But their happiness splinters under the strain of different needs and judgments rooted in the divide between the hearing and deaf worlds. Can they truly understand and support one another, bridge the gap between them? As they learn to see themselves and their partners more clearly, they yearn for a place to love and live together between sound and silence.
