Speaking in Tongues - Part 1 of 3 Speaking in Tongues - Part 2 of 3 Speaking in Tongues - Part 3 of 3

When a woman goes missing, four marriages fall into a mess of sex, lies, and neglect. Through it all, each couple desperately searches for fulfillment and the line between right and wrong becomes dangerously blurred. Speaking in Tongues is a thrilling play fresh from Australia; a multi-faceted adventure that reveals the darker side of human nature.

The Company Theatre, our Berkeley Street Partners who presented 2011’s critically-acclaimed The Test, return with this intriguing and intelligent play in which nine parallel lives are interlocked by lust, infidelity, and one mysterious stiletto.
