Book and lyrics by Mary Resing Music by Andy Welchel - All singing! All signing!
A world premiere musical about the 1890s culture war that changed the life of every Deaf person in America. Right here in Washington, DC, in the volatile 1890s, two powerful and egotistical men—Alexander Graham Bell and Edward Miner Gallaudet—clashed over how the Deaf should be taught to communicate. That contest was to impact every Deaf person thereafter. This new bilingual musical tells that momentous story through the real people who lived it, including a young girl named Helen Keller, just beginning to learn what it means to be a woman in an era of progress.
