TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: TheatreWorks Silicon Valley Launches 50th Season with a Whimsical Parable "The Language Archive"

Jul 15, 2019
TheatreWorks Silicon Valley has announced a stellar cast of acclaimed Broadway and TV stars for "The Language Archive," launching the Tony Award-winning theatre company’s celebratory 50th Anniversary season. Written by Julia Cho, whose Aubergine captured rapturous praise and multiple awards, "The Language Archive" is balanced delightfully between affection and adversity. The quirky comic drama tells the whimsical, life-affirming chronicle of a linguist fighting to preserve the dying languages of far-flung cultures, only to neglect the promise and passion of his own.

Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for Women Playwrights, this romantic parable for our times is directed by Jeffrey Lo, and features Francis Jue, Emily Kuroda, Jomar Tagatac, Elena Wright, and Adrienne Kaori Walters. It is currently performing through August 4, 2019 at the Lucie Stern Theatre (1305 Middlefield Rd.), Palo Alto. For tickets ($30-$100) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960.

In its world premiere at South Coast Repertory Theatre, it was said that "The Language Archive" uniquely blends absurdist farce with sentimental comedy.

TheatreWorks has assembled a stellar roster of film and stage stars for this production, including Francis Jue and Emily Kuroda, who return to TheatreWorks as Resten and Alta, a couple who are the last speakers of a dying language.
