Children of a Lesser God

Children of a Lesser God: 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 desire to connect — igniting a thrilling exploration of passion, intimacy, and what we surrender when we fall in love.

In 1980, Children of a Lesser God premiered on Broadway and asked: how can we truly communicate? Now, Tony Award®-winning director Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences) is laying this question bare in a breathtaking new revival of this landmark play starring Joshua Jackson (The Affair), Lauren Ridloff (Wonderstruck), and Anthony Edwards (ER). Jesse Green of The New York Times calls it “thrilling! Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational.”
