Big Idea Theatre’s “Unbound” 2014 season re-emerges on Friday, July 25, with the opening of “The Language Archive” by Julia Cho.

George has spent his life documenting languages, but words fail him when Mary, his wife, tells George that she is leaving him. That same day, the last two speakers of a vanishing tongue arrive to work with George and his love-struck assistant, Emma, to record their language for posterity. This magical tale is filled with love and loss, beginning and endings and examines the force and failings of language.

This production is directed by Benjamin T. Ismail.
