Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (Fences) directs the first-ever revival of the play that explores the relationship between a teacher at a school for the Deaf, and Sarah, the young woman he meets there. The play, which challenges long-held misconceptions about Deaf culture and the essence of communication, won the 1980 Tony Award for Best Play.

The Broadway revival of Mark Medoff’s Tony Award-winning drama co-stars Joshua Jackson and Lauren Ridloff.

Ridloff earned a Tony Award nomination for her Broadway debut performance as Sarah.

The cast also includes Emmy Award winner Anthony Edwards (ER), Kecia Lewis, Julee Cerda, Treshelle Edmond, and John McGinty.
