Take 5 presents Children of a Lesser God by Mark Medoff
This is a powerful play which raises questions about the perceptions of deafness and dealing with disability and relationships. Starting his new job as an instructor at a school for the deaf, James Leeds meets Sarah Norman, a young deaf woman who works at the school as a member of the custodial staff. A romance slowly develops between the pair in spite of Sarah's withdrawn emotional state due in part to her difficult relationship she has with her mother.
Cast: Chris Doyle, Sarah Jacob, Noelle Clarke, Mike O’Neill, Jonathon Brackett, Ellen Quirke. Directed by Noelle Clarke.
