Pride Series - Swollen Tongues: a Stage Reading
Approximate running time: 2 hours
#36-556 North Nechako Road
Prince George BC V2K 1A1
Thomas and his sister Catherine are both receiving instruction in the powers of poetry by their tutor Dr. Wise. While Thomas is more prolific than skilled in his praise of his beloved, Sonja, Catherine is strangely mute. The problem? Catherine is secretly in love with Sonja, too, and has taken the liberty of improving her brother's verses and giving them to Sonja under an assumed name, Overripe. In this sensual comedy of manners, the characters discover that no-one is without secrets, and that poetry can unlock the door to love in unexpected ways.
Swollen Tongues is the first creative collaboration between Theatre Northwest's Artistic Associates (Melissa Glover, Anna Russell, and Bradley Charles) and Artists-in-Residence (Michelle Cyr and Julian Legere)
