January 8 – February 23, 2014

Written by Nina Raine Directed by David Muse   Billy was born deaf into a garrulous academic family who raised him to lip read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia — who’s going deaf herself — Billy decides it’s time to speak on his own terms, sending shock waves through the family. Playing out in sign language, argument, music, and mesmerizing silence, this sophisticated drama examines family, belonging, and the limitations of language. A moving and surprising play from a rising star of the British theatre, presented in cooperation with Gallaudet University.   


Water By the Spoonful*_

March 5 – April 13, 2014

Written by Quiara Alegria Hudes Directed by KJ Sanchez   In North Philly, ex-Marine Elliot works at Subway, cares for his dying mom, and leans on his cousin Yaz as he tries to acclimate to civilian life. Online, four addicts cling to their chatroom support group, struggling for another day sober. These lives collide as events small and large threaten their fragile stabilities, in this eloquent and haunting play about resilience, redemption, and families of both blood and choice.
