World Premiere

Opening night Tuesday, August 21
Living in contented isolation, everyone in nineteenth-century Chilmark knows someone who is deaf, and every hearing person speaks with their hands as well as their voices. But as the world heads toward the 20th century, a different way of thinking about deafness brings discord between good neighbors and lifelong friends — and ultimately strengthens their fellowship. A compelling drama about a remarkable community, based on historical events.
