Upcoming Events

The Language of Trees play and After-parties
$20 tickets are available to see The Language of Trees at the Black Box Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.

The Language of Trees is a Roundabout Underground production, an initiative of the Roundabout theater that supports emerging playwrights . Synopsis from "When an American translator is sent into a war zone in the Middle East, a friendly neighbor back home volunteers to help out his wife and son as they come to terms with his absence. But as the situation abroad deteriorates, their uncertainty grows. Will his wife be able to build a new life without him? Will the neighbor, frozen with her own grief, warm up to a new family? And will seven-year-old Eben, who surveys the changing world around him with an almost magical curiosity, ever see his father again?

The Language of Trees is a boldly theatrical, provocative and often poetic exploration of the fragility of language, the complexity of war and the meaning of family. Don't miss this world premiere production of playwright Steven Levenson's timely and powerful new play."

Charles Isherwood at the New York Times describes The Language of Trees as 'imaginative and engaging. Steven Levenson's sensitive drama is welcome for the imaginative sympathy it extends to the families left behind."
