Billy has been deaf since birth, but his family has never learned sign language. In fact, until he meets Sylvia, who is fluent in ASL, Billy has never in his life been understood by anyone. This critically acclaimed sensation from Nina Raine will awaken all of your senses as it boldly asks some of life’s hardest questions: what is communication and understanding, and can we truly have it—with anyone?

“Excellent and thought-provoking…highly recommended.” ― Midwest Book Review
“…Russell Harvard and Susan Pourfar reprise their stage roles in Raine’s taut and often comic play. …Harvard, who was born into a third-generation deaf family, brings poignancy, honesty, and depth to the proceedings. Fine contemporary theater.” ― AudioFile Magazine
