"The Language Archive" by Julia Cho. Black Box Theater

The company launches its new name, Bozeman Actors Theatre, with a production of Julia Cho’s The Language Archive. Co-produced with MSU’s School of Film and Photography, the play is directed by Will Dickerson and features Dee Dee Van Zyl, Cara Wilder, Dan Erickson, Tom Morris, and Claire McGinty.  Called “…a quirky, but ravishingly well-written piece that is smart, funny, deep and tender” (OC Weekly), The Language Archive tells the story of a linguist consumed with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures. Closer to home, though, his own language fails him in his attempts at communicating with those closest to him. At turns whimsical and poignant, the play explores the fragile nature of the language of love.
