In the spirit of spring, MuCCC Theater will present Julia Cho's magic-realism-style romantic comedy "The Language Archive," directed by Jeff Siuda. The play tells the story of George, a man too wrapped up in being a prominent linguist and the head of the prestigious Language Archive to pay any mind to his unraveling personal life. George is not only oblivious to his wife's plans to leave him, but is also unaware his lab assistant is desperately infatuated with him. His professional life takes a dramatic hit as well when he learns that the last two remaining speakers of a language touted to be the most beautiful on Earth, Elloway, are no longer speaking to each other.
"The Language Archive" will run Friday, May 27, through Saturday, June 4, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays; an additional 2 p.m. performance on Saturday, June 4. Advance tickets are $18 for adults, and $13 for seniors and students; $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students at the door. muccc.org.
