United Solo Theatre Festival Presents The Encore Performance Of LISTEN CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
Listen...Can You Hear Me Now?, the award-winning show portraying the complex life of a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults), written and performed by Gloria Rosen and directed by Suzanne Bachner, makes its encore performance at the United Solo Theatre Festival on New York's Theater Row on Saturday, October 14 at 4:00 PM.
Deaf parents. A hearing child. A woman on the edge of two worlds tells the story of finding her own voice. Directed by Suzanne Bachner, Gloria Rosen invites the audience into her childhood home where ringing telephones and doorbells light up the house, watching TV requires extraordinary concentration, and a little girl becomes the world's first lip-syncher. Join Gloria as she explores the vital importance of family communication through experiences that were funny, frustrating and fierce.
This performance will be ASL interpreted and features lighting and sound design by Katie Chai and Chasmin Hallyburton.
