We’ve been reading submissions like crazy this past week – on buses, in coffeehouses, thousands of miles in the air and one of us (guess which staff member) even read while in the Dominican Republic on a kiteboarding vacation. After much discussion, we have finally chosen the script we’ll be reading for There Will Be Words on Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 PM at Trident Booksellers & Cafe.
Drum roll, please! Oh wait… I suppose I put the play title and playwright in the header of this post and already ruined the suspense.
Congratulations to Meron Langsner and his play, Burning Up the Dictionary!
Burning up the Dictionary, as described by Meron, feels like “When Harry Met Sally” but possessed by the demonic spirit of Neil LaBute. It journeys into the tenaciously crumbling relationship of two people who love and need each other but can’t find any room for trust. The play explores the personal language of every relationship and how a common language that once kept people extremely close can also wound and drive them further apart.
So mark your calendars, folks, for Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 PM and join us for a reading of this fantastic play!
