About the event

Join us for our last main stage show of the 2023 season, LANGUAGE OF ANGELS! This is a hauntingly beautiful play that you do not want to miss!

Directed by Allison Parton

ABOUT THE SHOW: One night in 1987, 10 high school friends enter the cave systems on the edge of rural North Carolina. Amidst the drinking, partying, and youthful hubris, one of them goes missing. Celie’s body is never found, and those left behind remain haunted by her memory. Or perhaps, they remain haunted by something a little more tangible.

In Language of Angels, Naomi Izuka explores the lives of those left behind in the wake of tragedy. By combining elements of Japanese Noh Theatre with Appalachian Ghost Stories, Izuka weaves a hauntingly beautiful tale of grief, guilt, accountability, and fate. She uses Nonrealism and nonlinear storytelling to reveal not only what happened to Celie, but what happened to those who survived her. Language of Angels tells the parallel stories of 9 friends who were unable to overcome loss or their own tragic fates.
