The Language Archive (2020)

"It makes me much sadder than I could ever possibly express. Even with all my languages, there still aren't the right words."

George is a linguist whose life's work is dedicated to preserving nearly lost languages, but his passion has complicated his relationships with Mary, his wife, and Emma, his assistant. Can Reston and Alta—the last two people on Earth who speak a language about to go extinct—teach him how to speak from his heart?

In Acting Studio performances, audiences experience a variety of experimental works with CU Theatre & Dance's talented students, in an intimate black box theatre. Don't wait to reserve your free tickets. Due to limited seating, these productions often sell out in just a few days.
