The Language Archive by Julia Cho
When love just can’t find the right words.
An intensive workshop will culminate in this staged reading of The Language Archive by Julia Cho. The funny and heartwarming play tells the story of a hapless George, a linguist, who cannot seem to find the right words to prevent his wife from leaving him. Meanwhile, George’s lab assistant, Emma, tries desperately – and in vain – to communicate her deep feelings to George. Throughout the play, we witness a range of different characters trying to emerge from the space between what is said and what is not said.
The piece provides a backdrop for a workshop on “Subtext and Character Development” with Maria Ott.
