Language of Angels, produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

While partying with her friends in the deep dark meandering caves of a rural North Carolina town, Celie disappears. What ensues is an investigation of the fate of the friends who outlive her. Naomi Iizuka’s eerie play is an exploration of love, loss, memory, guilt, mortality and the intricate web of agency, accountability and fate. It is pulsating hum adroitly woven in a vast container where the ethereal and the ordinary commune, time is nonlinear and the language of angels is destined to illuminate and scorch.
