What we're working on now and what's still to come


LANGUAGE GAMES

By Barbara Yoshida, directed by Ralph Lewis. In an absurdist take on philosophy and language, a young woman conjures three great thinkers from the past, and as she spars with them over a spirited game of Mahjong, words spin out of control until a mythological hare inspires her to confront their chauvinism and she wins the game. Language Games, is an official selection of the 5th annual NYC Indie Theatre Film Festival, March 10-14, 2021.
