Children of a lesser god : a play in two acts by Mark Howard Medoff( Book )

56 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in 7 languages and held by 2,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After three years in the Peace Corps, James, a young speech therapist, joins the faculty of a school for the deaf, where he is to teach lip-reading. He meets Sarah, a school dropout, totally deaf from birth, and estranged both from the world of hearing and from those who would compromise to enter that world. Fluent in sign language, James tries, with little success, to help Sarah, but gradually the two fall in love and marry. At first their relationship is a happy and glowing one, as the gulf of silence between them seems to be bridged by their desire to understand each other's needs and feelings, but discord soon develops as Sarah becomes militant for the rights of the deaf and rejects any hint that she is being patronized and pitied. In the end the chasm between the worlds of sound and silence seems almost too great to cross, but love and compassion hold the hope of reconciliation, and a deeper, fuller understanding of differences that, in the final essence, can unite as well as divide

The wager : a play in three acts by Mark Howard Medoff( Book )

10 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leeds, a brainy, tart-tongued graduate student, has bet his 'super-jock' roommate, Ward (a Phys-Ed major), that Ward can seduce Honor, the wife of a young professor (Ron). But Leeds has also wagered that if Ward is successful, Ron will make an attempt on his life within forty-eight hours. Thereafter, as can be expected, the situation grows progressively more complex, with fun and fear brilliantly juxtaposed. In the resultant comic mix the acerbic Leeds does his best to manipulate circumstances to his own advantage, while narcissistic Ward, bored Honor and bumbling Ron all fall victim to his stratagems. In the end, the result is not tragedy but pure, bubbling comedy, laced with wit and filled with revealing insights into the natures of our four singular and attractive principals."--From publisher's website
