THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.
The Program in Theater presents a workshop reading/performance of We Once Spoke: A Post-Apocalyptic Play in Two Parts, a new play by senior Jonathan Alicea ’20.
Earth’s final community of English-speakers. Fifty speakers, give or take. No contact with the outside world. Few written and spoken records remain. Suffice to say, within a few generations, English will be dead as if a single soul had uttered it. While some in the community work to preserve the language, others are less keen to expend their energy and resources to keep it just barely surviving. It is only when an outsider intent on studying and learning their language arrives that the community must reckon with their language’s isolated, endangered status. As a result, further division over the matter threatens their long-standing harmony. After all, is a language truly worth saving?
Ticket information will be available soon.
