Meet George, a linguist, a master of languages, who cannot express his love for his wife--and ends up losing her. Follow this whimsical and heartbreaking look at love and language that asks, "How do we save what is dying?
“E.B. Brooks has designed a potpourri of terrific costumes, from George’s schlumpy shirts and slacks to Alta and Resten’s Elloway native garb.”
- Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA 11/9/2011
“For all its lovelorn characters, “Language” is a play of ideas, a style reinforced by set designer Francois-Pierre Couture’s giant wall of multicolored filing cabinets that open to reveal doors, recording devices and secrets. Add E.B. Brooks’s vibrant, slightly fairy-tale costumes and a certain wonderful smell, and the overall effect is a sensuality that deepens what can sometimes be more of an essay than a story.”
-Charlotte Stoudt, LA Times 11/10/2011
“Nelson Mashita and Jeanne Sakata devour these universal Bickersons, drolly costumed by E.B. Brooks, to uproarious and touching effect.”
-David C. Nichols, Backstage 11/23/2011
