When a wealthy Manhattan widow takes up private lessons with an alluring young Italian instructor, she learns much more than just a language. As an unexpected romance blossoms, her daughter raises doubts concerning this mysterious teacher's intentions. The three tangle with art, passion, and even vendetta in Joe Godfrey's Romance Language. Romance Language had its World Premiere in 2014 at Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury, Connecticut.

The creative and production team for ROMANCE LANGUAGE includes scenic design by Paul Tate DePoo III, costume design by Tony Award nominee Gregory Gale, lighting design by Grant Yeager, sound design by Bart Fasbender, and casting by Geoff Josselson. Stephen Sury is Production Manager and Ashley Rodbro is Production Stage Manager.
