Because They Have No Words

World Premiere, Lounge Theatre (LA), 2006
Chicago Premiere, Piven Theatre, 2008

On rare occasions in theatre a seamless symbiosis forms among cast, director, text, lighting, and sound. There are a lot of those moments in this world premiere, thanks to the deft, imaginative direction of Emilie Beck. This production reminds us of what good theatre is capable of achieving.

Jeff Favre, Backstage West

The script is an actor’s dream, and director Emilie Beck paints with a vivid yet delicate brush, evoking nuances of mannerism and regional and class accent to bring characters to life even in the briefest sketch.
