'THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE'
by Julia Cho
directed by Sam Chittenden.
George is a brilliant linguist, consumed with preserving and documenting dying languages. But at home, he cannot find the words that will save his disintegrating marriage.
George's wife, Mary, is exasperated and sets out in search of her own happiness, finding a new purpose through a chance meeting with a man at a station.
George's archival assistant, Emma, is mute with adoration for him and decides to learn Esperanto in the hope it will help her to be understood.
The archive newest subjects,
an elderly couple who are the last speakers of an obscure language, refuse to utter a word to one another!
A magically inventive comedy, The Language Archive traverses the gulf between what's said and what isn't. Whimsical, melancholic, yet life affirming, it deploys the universal languages of Esperanto and love.
