Photo Coverage: Roundabout's THE LANGUAGE OF TREES Opening Night

On Wednesday, October 29th, 2008, The Roundabout Theatre Company presented the opening night production of THE LANGUAGE OF TREES, a new play by Steven Levenson, directed by Alex Timbers, featuring Maggie Burke as “Kay Danley,” Natalie Gold as “Loretta Trumble-Pinkerstone,” Michael Hayden  as “Denton Pinkerstone,” Gio Perez as “Eben Trumble-Pinkerstone” and Michael Warner as “Bill Clinton.”  This will be a limited engagement through December 14th, 2008.

The design team includes Cameron Anderson (sets), Emily Rebholz (costumes), David Weiner (lights) and M.L. Dogg (sound).

When an American translator is sent into a U.S. war zone in the Middle East, a friendly neighbor volunteers to help out his wife and young son back at home. As events abroad spiral out of control, the lives of all the characters are turned upside down. The Language of Trees is a boldly theatrical and provocative new play about the fragility of language, the ecology of war and the meaning of neighborliness in an age of terror.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre box office (111 West 46 Street).  The ticket price is $20.00 for all seats. All tickets for The Language of Trees will be issued as General Admission passes for first-come, first-served seating on the show date.
