THEATREWORKS SILICON VALLEY PRESENTS:
THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE BY JULIA CHO
DIRECTED BY JEFFREY LO
SUSAN SMITH BLACKBURN PRIZE FOR WOMEN PLAYWRIGHTS
A quirky, comic drama about communication—its potential and its limits —this romantic parable for our times features a linguist at a loss for words, especially the vocabulary of the heart. Balanced delightfully between affection and adversity, it is the whimsical, life-affirming chronicle of a brilliant scientist who fights to preserve the dying languages of far-flung cultures, only to neglect the promise and passion of his own.
“Passionate. Wise and wonderful.”
