Speaking in Tongues at Maitland Repertory Theatre
Maitland Repertory Theatre
244 High St, Maitland, NSW, 2320
SPEAKING IN TONGUES by Andrew Bovell – 1 to 19 May 2019
Two couples set out to betray their partners, a lover returns from the past, a husband doesn’t answer the phone, a woman disappears and a neighbour is the prime suspect…
Contracts are broken between intimates, and powerful bonds are formed between strangers. In Andrew Bovell’s masterfully interconnected polyphony, an evocative mystery unravels at the same time as a devastating tale of disconnection between individuals, partners and communities.
Speaking in Tongues, which became the film “Lantana”, is a truly engaging story, weaving together separate but related threads and characters in an unusual series of coincidences.
