STAG presents our first production for 2010: Speaking in Tongues, by Andrew Bovell. Speaking in Tongues will be directed by Kris Weber and play at the Strathmore Community Hall from March 4 to March 13.
Speaking In Tongues is an Australian play about the right and wrong of emotional conduct. Two married couples switch partners for the night. Who will have the courage for betrayal? Who will walk away?
A man weeps in the street after realising that his only love, long vanished, is alive and well – and has completely forgotten him.
A woman disappears on a lonely road, late at night, leaving ominous last words on her absent husband’s answering machine; at the same time, a man covered in blood comes home and throws a woman’s shoe into an adjacent empty lot.
The play delves into the murky territory of intimacy and trust within relationships. It shows the darker sides of our emotional selves. Consisting of nine characters, performed by four actors, whose lives are connected – but not in the way they think they are – Speaking in Tongues combines three stories that centre on two pairs of shoes and a detective sent to investigate an incident on a lonely country road. This is a story about secrets, real and imagined, and how they can poison relationships.
