Roughly 20 percent of Americans are living with some degree of hearing loss, and performing artist Kimberly Parker is one of them. Part monologue, part musical exploration, her original production “Lost in Sound: A One Woman Play” sheds light on the complex issues related to hearing loss by sharing Parker’s own story of loss and hope. She’ll open up about her journey–how she was born with bi-lateral/progressive hearing loss which went undetected for years, became deaf by age 40, and underwent surgery for cochlear implants–and the lessons she’s learned. Town Hall serves as the debut venue for this inspirational–and educational–autobiographical account.
