Another Person Is a Foreign Country

Mee, Charles L.

A one and a half foot tall woman with the voice of an opera singer, a deaf man who signs, a transvestite, a pair of conjoined or identical twins, an immensely tall African American man-all take their places around a dinner table-and we join them for this most basic and universal of social activities, the breaking of bread. [8 actors, and, if possible, a chorus of fifteen people with Down Syndrome, a blind choir from the Lighthouse, and a rock band composed of musicians recently discharged from a mental hospital]
