BIG IDEA THEATRE

little theatre.
BIG ideas.

NOW THRU AUG 23

  George has spent his life documenting languages, but words fail him when Mary, his wife, tells George that she is leaving him.  That same day, the last two speakers of a vanishing tongue arrive to work with George and his love-struck assistant, Emma, to record their language for posterity.


This magical tale is filled with love and loss, beginning and endings and examines the force and failings of language.


"Quirky, but ravishingly well-written piece that is smart, funny, deep and tender." —OC Weekly.

Capital Stage invites two encore performances of this popular Big Idea Theatre production.

Danny’s complex new drama about an African-American family struggling to leave the projects has just been selected for the nation's preeminent play festival. But Danny, a young white, gay playwright, submitted his work under a pseudonym in the hope of increasing its chances for production. So he hires Emilie, a black actress, to stand in for him as author. What starts out as a questionable idea pulls Danny, Emilie, Danny’s boyfriend, and his best friend down a path littered with truth, lies, revelation, and betrayal. This whip-smart, fearless and funny new play takes an unflinching look at the power of words and how far we'll go to get what we want. SN&R said, “Big Idea Theatre tackles this multilayered production with an impressive four-person cast.” Read the full review
