The Tender Land

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” - George Bernard Shaw It is an inherit human need to want to be acknowledged, to be understood, to be heard. Everyone needs to have a voice. Our society listens to respond instead of listening to understand. We do not take the time to actively engage the people in our lives. We move so quickly that all meaning is lost. This is an issue at the heart of Aaron Copland's The Tender Land. On stage this weekend, you will see many different forms of communication. Characters will be speaking and singing in English, some will be using American Sign Language, some will even sing in English and sign at the same time
