167 TONGUES

Genre: Other
Conceived and Directed by Ari Laura Kreith

Queens Theatre in the Park (QTP) presents 167 Tongues, conceived and directed by Ari Laura Kreith, on Saturday, October 16 at 2pm and 8pm and Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 3pm at Queens Theatre in the Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Flushing, NY. Tickets are FREE and reservations may be made by phone at 718-760-0064.

In 167 Tongues, 11 playwrights and 29 actors bring to life one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the world - Jackson Heights! A panorama of characters are interwoven in this rich and rewarding tapestry of life in the streets, homes and shops of a section of a borough where 167 languages are spoken. A Nepali woman and a Mexican man, Ecuadoran and Bangladeshi girls, a Rwandan night nurse, a Dominican manicurist and her Jewish-Chinese boyfriend - all cross paths in this vibrant new play that explores the emotional geography of this rapidly-evolving community!

This performance is a part of Queens Theatre in the Park’s New Play Development Program, sponsored by ConEdison.
