What drives a boy born profoundly deaf who never learns to read, nurse write, sign or speak, to create over 20,000 works of art? James Castle made himself into one of the most important American outsider artists. Playwright Charles Mee and Our Voices continue their collaboration in investigating the landscape of Castle’s world combining music, dance, sign language and more as they celebrate the life of this extraordinary artist.

Our Voices Theater is a multicultural company dedicated to creating innovative theater that exalts diversity, engenders understanding, and provokes empathy. They investigate themes of otherness in society whether they are culture, language, gender, or ability. Our Voices actively cultivates an inclusive experience that more accurately represents the world in which we live and our shared humanity.
OUR VOICES PROJECT was commissioned and developed through the Archive Residency, a program of New Ohio Theatre and IRT Theater.
