Symmetry Theatre Company presents The Language Archive
, the latest play from Julia Cho, the acclaimed playwright of Durango
and The Piano Teacher
, as well as a writer on hit shows like Big Love
. A success in New York, The Language Archive
presents the comical/tragic tale of a brilliant linguist who has trouble mastering the language of love. Laughter and pathos course through this affecting tale of a linguist, his wife, his assistant and Reston and Alta -- the last speakers of a dying language they refuse to speak. Big laughs are coupled with big questions about love, language and even Esperanto. Chloe Bronzan directs the Bay Area premiere of this lyrical exploration of how language can sometimes be the greatest obstacle to true communication.
