and impossible decisions

Directed by Phillippa Hibbs
Season: May 31 to June 3, 2023, 8pm

Brodie, a gifted linguist, learns unsettling news about the baby she carries. Unable to get comfort from her girlfriend, she finds it in the two least likely sources imaginable: the elderly speaker of a vanishing language … and a gorilla at the zoo. A crisp, fast-moving, tough-minded story about love, language, memory, and impossible decisions. Madeleine George’s insightfully humane story shines a light on the way we connect with others, and the vulnerability we all face when there are no easy answers left. Adult content. By arrangement with Samuel French and Play Bureau.
Running time: 90 minutes. No interval.
