SPEAKING IN TONGUES

Genre: Drama

Fragile marriages are put to the test as two couples inadvertently switch partners for an adulterous exchange.

Simultaneously, a psychologist goes missing after being stranded on a deserted road, and one man's suspicious behavior leads his neighbor to believe he might be responsible for the woman's disappearance.

Fresh off the recent success of their inaugural production, Così, Australian Made Entertainment is pleased to present Andrew Bovell's modern Australian classic, Speaking In Tongues. Winner of the Australian Writer's Guild award for Best Play, the New York Times called it "clever, provocative, elliptically resonant and writerly".

Four actors bring to life nine intersecting lives in this haunting and challenging play from one of Australia's most exciting and inventive playwrights. Through interwoven stories, Speaking In Tongues treats its audience to an intriguing narrative journey. Where one story ends, another begins. The same events are retold from different perspectives. Characters reappear, others disappear.

Exploring our inability to truly understand each other, this absorbing psychological thriller will leave you breathless as it poses questions about the rights and wrongs of emotional conduct. Are we listening to each other? Are we making ourselves understood? Or are we merely Speaking In Tongues?
