Soulstice Theatre stages "Children of a Lesser God"

The Soulstice Theatre presents its play, "Children of a Lesser God," which will be performed Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. May 7 to 16.

All performances will take place in the Keith Tamsett Studio Theatre at the Marian Center for Non-Profits, located at 3195 S. Superior Street.

The play details the romance and stormy marriage of Sarah Norman, a sensitive and spirited young deaf woman, and James Leeds, an idealistic new teacher at the school for the deaf where she works. James' desire to help Sarah lead a less isolated life by teaching her how to speak and read lips is met with stubborn resistance, leading to unyielding conflict in their relationship.

A percentage of the play's box office earnings will be donated to the Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in West Allis.

For more information or to make reservations, call the Solstice Theater at (414) 431-3187.
