Sign language interpreted performance - Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015

Language works as equal parts shield and sword in the verbal word play at the center of God's Ear. Parents Mel and Ted try to hold together a marriage unraveling after the accidental death of their son, as words stream forth in torrents in this funny and profound play. Filled with linguistic playfulness and a lively sense of rhythm, God's Ear is an entertaining and accessible play that explores the haze of suffering called grief with grace, depth, whimsy, and humor. The battle plays out in a world with its own surreal lexicon-where the Tooth Fairy sings and GI Joe offers family counseling.

"Jenny Schwartz's funny and bracing God's Ear has a way of making you feel like it's actively rummaging through your subconscious, making associations on your behalf that impress with their to-the-marrow shrewdness and veracity." - Killian Melloy, WBUR Boston.
