‘CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD
7 p.m., Arkansas Repertory Theatre. $10.

Amelia Hensley, a senior at the Arkansas School for Deaf, leads the cast of “Children of a Lesser God,” the latest from the Rep's SecondStage. Hensley stars as Sarah, a young deaf woman who falls for James, a new speech therapist at her school. The alternately heartwarming and heartbreaking love story finds the couple trying to bridge the divide between their different worlds. Featuring a young (ages 16 to 23), all-Central Arkansas cast, the Tony-award winning play coincides with Deaf Awareness Week. All of the hearing cast members learned sign language in preparation for their roles. Nicole Capri, the Rep's director of education, directs. She recently completed a year-long residency teaching at the Arkansas School for the Deaf. The show runs through October, with performances on Wednesdays through Sundays. All performances will be sign-interpreted for the hearing impaired.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
