Every day a boy comes to an apple tree to eat her fruit, swing
from her branches, and slide down her trunk. But as the boy
grows older, he begins to want more—and so she gives and gives
until she’s only a stump. Experience “poetry in the air” when
the award-winning Little Theatre of the Deaf combines American
Sign Language with spoken words to bring to life Shel
Silverstein’s classic illustrated storybook. Made up of both
deaf and hearing artists, the company begins with an
introduction to sign language, then continues with captivating
stories, interactive improvisations, and Silverstein’s tender
parable of unconditional love that the New York Times calls
“the most rewarding kids’ show in town.”
