Excellent play about the power of language. A funny and imaginative, non-linear journey covering philosophy, psychology, relationships, mental illness, abuse, love and that meaningless little thing called life.

Terrific acting, but the piece itself was onerous, repetitive, and taxing.

Quotes & Highlights

“Jennifer Chambers directs with great intensity while maintaining unflagging forward momentum despite a complicated flashback structure.” —Hollywood Reporter
“Playwright Andrea Kuchlewska combines unlikely ingredients in her comedy: an est-like training program for self-realization, the art/science of linguistics and a stormy love affair involving a pair of obsessive linguists.” —LA Weekly
“The play goes back and forth in time, and director Jennifer Chambers, who was once a self-help coach, choreographs the action smoothly, so that we follow the time shifts easily. Under her guidance, the interactions between actors and audience flow effortlessly, and she has subtly interwoven the hilarity with stunningly painful moments.”  —Backstage
