Deaf West Theatre will offer a special 30th anniversary of Children of a Lesser God from September 6 to October 11 in Los Angeles. It will be fully accessible to deaf and hard of hearing audiences unlike the original. The original stage manager for the Tony Award-winning play is involved and tickets go on sale next month.
The drama follows the romantic relationship between a teacher and his profoundly deaf student.
Following a successful debut in Los Angeles, the Broadway production opened at the Longacre Theatre in New York on March 30, 1980. It ran for 887 performances and earned Tonys for its lead actors and playwright.
