About the Show
The winner of the 2012 Drama Desk Awards, this is the story of a deaf boy born into a hearing family, who becomes an expert lip reader to keep up with them.
Billy was born deaf into a hearing family. He was raised inside its fiercely idiosyncratic and politically incorrect cocoon. He has adapted brilliantly to his family's unconventional ways, but they've never bothered to return the favor. It's not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he finally understands what it means to be understood.
