From the producers: Stop assuming. Stop judging. Start listening. Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, "Children of a Lesser God" tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there. As their relationship heats up, so does their need for control, igniting a thrilling exploration of passion, intimacy, and connection.

Following a highly successful run at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, "Children of a Lesser God" first opened on Broadway in March 1980 Longacre Theatre, where it ran for 887 performances. The production won 3 Tony awards, including Best Play. The play was adapted into a 1986 film starring Marlee Matlin (in an Oscar-winning performance) and William Hurt, receiving five Academy Award nominations. It was also the first ever female-helmed film to be nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Picture category.


Tony-winner Kenny Leon ("A Raisin in the Sun," "Fences") directs a cast that includes Joshua Jackson ("Dawson's Creek," "The Affair"), Lauren Ridloff ("Wonderstruck") and Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Anthony Edwards ("ER," "Top Gun"). Drama Desk nominee Kecia Lewis ("Dessa Rose"), Julee Cerda, Treshelle Edmond, and John McGinty round out the cast.
