Songs My Mother Never Sung Me is an opera for families about a Deaf mom and her hearing son. The piece is bilingual and is performed and sung in English and ASL. The heart of this touching and funny work is its intimate connection to playwright Dave Clarke’s experience growing up as a CODA (Child of Deaf Adult). Recommended for ages 5 and up.
