Endangered languages center stage in “Language Archive”

Julia Cho‘s play “The Language Archive” is a comedy about a linguist who documents endangered languages, which are a metaphor for human communication.

Debuting March 26, 2010, at the South Coast Repertory in the US, the play won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and is currently playing at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon through June 18 under the direction of Laurie Woolery.
