In the Book Of

by John Walch
March 27 thru May 19
In the Gompertz Theatre

Overview
Two women— Naomi, an army lieutenant, and Anisah, her Afghan translator—lose their husbands in the war. Once discharged, Naomi brings Anisah home with her to Mississippi, where things begin to unravel. Friendships are thrown into turmoil, families are fractured, and a city-wide political debate ensues. With the threat of deportation looming, everyone must examine the true meaning of family, friendship, and the American Way.

FST is using the Hearing Loop System

This is the official sign designating a venue that has a Loop System. Note the capital white  “T” in the lower right corner. This designates a system that sends the sound directly to a T-Coil, a tiny wireless receiver that the hearing aid must have to receive the sound.

The Hearing Loop System is the only system that sends clear, superior sound from a microphone directly into a hearing aid or cochlear implant without interference.
