” THE BOOK THAT WON’T CLOSE- Confessions of A Love Addict “, is written and performed by Deaf Musician/Performer TL Forsberg and is performed in spoken voice and American Sign Language.
The show follows a bi-culturally fluid Deaf woman through a series of bad relationships, until she meets a Transgender coach who walks her through a self contained rehab for LOVE ADDICTION to confront her unhealed trauma and shame around the parts of her that are both hearing and Deaf. Through her unique relationship with TREVA, a Trans person who embraces both masculine and feminine, the protagonist learns to claim her place as an brilliant Hybrid on the path of healing and integration.
The show is a dark comedy that includes signed music, dance and video projections in an way that is not only inspirational but is “edu-taining.” THE BOOK THAT WON’T CLOSE is directed and developed by award winning director Jessica Lynn Johnson and is inclusive and accessible to both hearing and Deaf audiences.
