COMING MAY 31, 2019 Playland Productions is thrilled to present the Bay Area premiere of SILENT CITY by Dan Wilson. A developmental reading for a future stage production of a modern day noir detective story. Carol Stone is a private detective who is out to solve this whodunit murder mystery. Carol Stone is deaf. Yes, stone deaf. Both hilarious and poignant, this unique play will open a window into the culture and challenges of the deaf and hard of hearing communities in the hearing world. SILENT CITY will be spoken in English, American Sign Language (ASL), text and captioning. All deaf roles will be played by deaf actors. Please see Shows & Auditions for more info.
