Photo Coverage: Meet the Cast of THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE
The full company for the upcoming New York premiere of The Language Archive, a new play by Julia Cho, directed by Mark Brokaw will include Betty Gilpin (Emma), John Horton (Resten), Jayne Houdyshell (Alta), Matt Letscher (George) & Heidi Schreck (Mary).
The Language Archive will begin previews on Friday, September 24th and open officially on Sunday, October 17th, 2010 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, December 19th, 2010.
The 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.
Roundabout commissioned The Language Archive, which won the 2010 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize awarded to an outstanding new English-language play by a woman. The play had its world premiere at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, California in March 2010, produced by special arrangement with Roundabout and directed by Roundabout Associate Artist Mark Brokaw.
