Children of a Lesser God



Mark Medoff wrote the Tony Award-winning Children of a Lesser God in 1979 for actress Phyllis Frelich. It became the first play for a hearing audience with a leading role for a deaf performer. The play tells the story of James Leeds, a speech instructor, and his marriage to Sarah Norman, a deaf woman.
