About the Show
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.” — TALKIN’ BROADWAY
