“Falling On Deaf Eyes” is an autobiographical Dramedy about Justin Maurer, a rambunctious teenage punk rocker living with his single Deaf mother and hearing siblings on Bainbridge Island, Washington in the 1990’s. After a harrowing divorce from Justin’s overbearing and controlling father, his Deaf mother faces extraordinary challenges as a single parent of three rowdy hearing children in a small provincial town. Through punk rock, Justin embarks on an adolescent journey to cope with the challenges of straddling life in a hearing and Deaf world simultaneously. “Falling On Deaf Eyes” is a unique, one-of-a-kind show, an inspirational and universal portrayal of human courage and survival. (the first 2 and last 2 performances will have ASL interpreters available).

This unique production is an exciting multi-media theatrical experience incorporating music, sign language, storytelling, and theatrical visuals, with a team of sign language interpreters to ensure access to the deaf and hard of hearing. While hugely entertaining and accessible to music fans, the Fringe community, and the Deaf community, “Falling on Deaf Eyes” will also educate and inform the general public about American Sign Language and some of the daily issues facing the deaf and hard of hearing population. The show will enjoy its world premiere at Hollywood Fringe Festival 2019. All shows will be at McCadden Place Theatre – 1157 N McCadden Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90038.

Sometimes harrowing, often funny, but always compassionate in its depiction of a family in transition, “Falling on Deaf Eyes” is a unique, one-of-a-kind show and an inspirational and universal portrayal of human courage and survival.
