Speaking in Tongues
A woman waits on the side of the road. A jilted lover just can’t let go. A cop is devoured by guilt. Another woman forgets how to trust. A husband is called to account. Two couples give over to lust and set out to cheat.
Love is a dangerous game.
How far would you go to feel something? Andrew Bovell creates unfolding emotional origami where lives collide, mistakes are made and boundaries are broken. The basis for the multi award-winning film LANTANA, this is contemporary storytelling at its most thrilling.
Three years ago, Silo’s hit production of Bovell’s WHEN THE RAIN STOPS FALLING captivated audiences and solidified the company as the leading exponent of contemporary theatre in Auckland.
