BBB Fall Preview: The Language Archive

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents the New York premiere of THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE, a new play by Julia Cho, directed by Mark BrokawThe Language Archive is a poignant and quirky comedy that seems to prove love is the one language that can leave us all at a loss for words.  George is a man consumed with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures. Closer to home, though, language is failing him. He doesn’t know what to say to his wife, Mary, to keep her from leaving him, and he doesn’t recognize the deep feelings that his lab assistant, Emma, has for him. The cast of THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE includes Betty Gilpin as “Emma,” John Horton as “Resten,” Jayne Houdyshell as “Alta,” Matt Letscher as “George” & Heidi Schreck as “Mary.”
