Private Jones

Oct 13 - Nov 5, 2023

Private Jones is inspired by the true story of a deaf soldier in World War I who displays remarkable skill as a sniper while hiding his profound hearing loss. Driven by an ensemble of deaf, hearing and hard-of-hearing actors and a dynamic Celtic score, witness how one man’s journey through war becomes all the more treacherous because he - and we - can’t hear what’s coming next.

This production will be performed in spoken English as well as some American Sign Language and British Sign Language. ASL Interpretation and Open Captions will be available for select performances. See the Special Offers tab below for more information.
