THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE, by Julia Cho
LOS ANGELES (August 12, 2022) — This beautiful piece, directed by award-winning director, actor, and playwright Ann Noble and written by Julia Cho, will run Saturdays & Mondays at 8pm and Sundays at 4pm, August 20 through September 19. Performances will be at the McCadden Place Theatre in Hollywood.
In Cho’s The Language Archive, George is a linguist who cannot communicate; Mary is a baker who finds her freedom (and a really old starter); and Emma begins to discover her own voice. Plus there are a few other mischievous characters to help them on their journeys. This quirky, heart-felt play explores loss, love, and the power of language. Starring Kevin Michael Moran, Elisa Jacobs Nixon, Tiffany Bromley, Sandra Cruze, and William Warren. Lighting design by Hayden Kirschbaum. Sound design and original music by Matt Richter.
