The Language Archive, produced by the Bozeman Actors Theatre, performed at the Blackbox Theater (corner of 11th and Grant streets on the MSU campus). Performances will be October 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 23rd, 24th, & 25th on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

The Language Archive, directed by Will Dickerson, features Dee Dee Van Zyl, Cara Wilder, Dan Erickson and Tom Morris.  Claire McGinty rounds out the cast, with sound design by Colter Langan.

Called “a quirky, but ravishingly well-written piece that is smart, funny, deep and tender” (OC Weekly), The Language Archive tells the story of George, a linguist consumed with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures who, paradoxically, can’t seem to communicate with his own wife.  At turns comical and poignant, the play is an eloquent, whimsical discourse on love. The Language Archive’s dialogue has been described as “a tour de force” in which “the gulf between what's said and what isn't is rarely described and traversed with as much power as it is here…passionate…wise and wonderful” (Talkin’ Broadway).

There will be a special preview night Gala Fundraiser and Reception for BAT on Wednesday, October 15th, at the Black Box Theater at 6:30 p.m., beverages and light hors d’oeuvres will be offered along with introductory remarks by local Yellowstion Public Radio personality Chrysti the Wordsmith.  Preview audiences will also enjoy a reception with the cast following the performance.
