OCTOBER 10 - NOVEMBER 3
LANGUAGE OF ANGELS
A gripping, psychological whodunnit perfect for the Halloween season, Language of Angels begins in a cave on the edge of a rural North Carolina town where a teenaged girl once went missing. One of nine friends is responsible for her death, yet her ghostly, echoed cries will haunt each of them forever. Woven together are the parallel paths each friend takes that lead to their own tragic fates. Hidden beneath the scary, mysterious exterior, Language of Angels is ultimately a touching and deeply heartfelt play.
"What gives Language of Angels its strangeness, and a certain eerie magnetism, is that all the questions, pastpresentfuture, float around the stage simulataneously, unstuck from characters and chronology. Additionally, the play gives its most lyrical speeches to people who are insistently inarticulate. The angels are tarnished, earthbound, and their language has a kind of brute poetry."
- Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal
"Great theater creates a trance and weaves the audience into a world with its own irrefutable logic and connections. That's what happens in Language of Angels, Naomi Iizuka's splendidly realized drama about small-town tragedies. Language is about the sort of marginal, working-class lives short story writer Raymond Carver chronicled. Like Carver, Iizuka celebrates the struggle and humanity and imploded despair of her characters without sentimentalizing it or condescending."
-San Francisco Chronicle
