Children of a Lesser God on Broadway!


In 1980, Children of a Lesser God premiered on Broadway and asked: how can we truly communicate? Now, Tony Award®-winning director Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the SunFences) is laying this question bare in a breathtaking new production of this landmark play starring Joshua Jackson (“The Affair”), Lauren Ridloff (Wonderstruck), and Anthony Edwards (“ER”). Jesse Green of The New York Times calls it “thrilling! Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational.”

Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, Children of a Lesser God  tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there. As their relationship heats up, so does their desire to connect — igniting a thrilling exploration of passion, intimacy, and what we surrender when we fall in love

The Book Nook – March/April 2018

March is Women’s History month! RID honors the many women who have contributed to the field of interpreting. Women have authored many of the books in our bookstore, as well.  For March and April, we invite you to acquaint (or re-acquaint!) yourselves with one of RID Press’s all-time best sellers, a book that tells it like it is and leaves the reader with the tools for successfully navigating a diverse set of interpreting situations: Encounters with Reality: 1,001 Interpreter Scenarios, 2nd Ed. by Brenda E. Cartwright.

Book Description: The book contains 1,001 real-life scenarios that are sad, funny, perplexing and sometimes downright scary. It builds on the first edition by including responses and perspectives from experienced interpreters, deaf consumers, interpreter training program students, certified deaf interpreters, and successful National Interpreter Certification (NIC) candidates. Additionally, this edition provides a chapter dedicated to challenges in interpreting addressed by Demand-Control Schema Analysis. This groundbreaking text serves as an essential resource for sign language interpreters by providing the foundation for discussion in the classroom or among colleagues.

The author, Brenda Cartwright, is a long-time educator in the field, and the author of quite a few other works, many of them well-loved titles also published by RID Press, such as Fingerspelling in American Sign Language, Numbering in American Sign Language, and Multiple Meanings in American Sign Language.
