Speaking in Tongues (NHB Modern Plays)

Andrew Bovell,

Speaking in Tongues (NHB Modern Plays)
 
 

A powerful study of infidelity and interwoven lives, filmed as the award-winning Lantana.

A woman disappears. Four marriages become entangled in a web of love, deceit, sex and death. Who will survive?

Nine parallel lives – interlocked by four infidelities, one missing person and a mysterious stiletto – are woven through a fragmented series of confessionals and interrogations that gradually reveal a darker side of human nature.

'Bovell explores love, marriage, strangeness, intimacy, trust, betrayal, obsession, self-punishment and detachment with generous emotional intelligence' - Observer

'Clever, provocative, elliptically resonant' - New York Times
