Fictional Endangered Language in “Precious Little”

Playing through Saturday at Cornell University in the US is a play whose story includes a character that is an elder of the fictional Kari language.

According to the review “Engaging ‘Precious Little’ has much to say” in the Ithaca Journal, the play “Precious Little” is on stage through Saturday at the Flex Stage at Cornell University’s Schwartz Center. It is written by Cornell alumna Madeleine George and directed by student Miles Kenyon Rowland.

Without others to talk to in her language, the Kari speaker is unable to communicate freely.

Written in 2009, “Precious Little” is scheduled to play in Pittsburgh at the City Theatre from March 12 to April 3, 2011, and concurrently at the Chicago DCA Theater from March 1 to April 2, 2011.
