Chilmark

Opening night Tuesday, August 21
Patricia Neal Stage
Written by Catherine Rush
Directed by Catherine Rush
World Premiere
As the world inches toward the 20th century, no one in Chilmark thinks much about mainland issues. Here, almost every family has kin who are deaf-mute and every person speaks with their hands as well as their voices. Until one day a new arrival in town incites discord between good neighbors and life-long friends. Performed simultaneously in American Sign Language and English.

An earlier play by the same author was presented by the Playhouse in 2007 under the title, This Island Alone.
