WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

One of the most celebrated American plays of the late 20th century, Children of a Lesser God tackles the complexities of human connection and communication with insight, wit, and unyielding compassion. Its original Broadway production in 1980 earned a Tony Award for writer Mark Medoff (Best Play), as well as for the two leads: John Rubinstein and Phyllis Frelich. Its London transfer went on to win the Olivier Award for Best New Play. The acclaimed 1986 film adaptation starring William Hurt and Marlee Matlin further solidified the work's place in the American canon and earned Matlin the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Frelich and Matlin remain the only deaf actors ever to have won the Tony and Academy Awards for leading roles, respectively. Directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun), this new production stars Joshua Jackson (Dawson's Creek), Lauren Ridloff, and Anthony Edwards (ER).
