KNOX I want to see God. I don’t want any more signs. I want to see His face.
Ash has a blessed life, thankful every day for the gifts of his family, his addiction, and his son’s Deafness. But on one fateful day, everything’s taken from him. How can he see this unexpected test, that threatens to cast him and his loved ones into darkness, as the ultimate gift? Performed simultaneously in English and ASL by two casts, Craig Lucas’s sublime, stunning new play is a theatrical event not to be missed.
The play will be simultaneously performed in American Sign Language by a shadow cast of Deaf actors.
