By Madeleine George. Brodie is a gifted linguist and researcher in her 40s who has become pregnant through In Vitro Fertilization. When she receives troubling news about her unborn child, she reaches out to her girlfriend for solace, but is unable to find it. Surprising even herself, she instead finds comfort in two unlikely sources: an elderly speaker of a vanishing language and, of all things, a gorilla at the zoo. This funny, charming, and slightly offbeat play is an in-depth look at the beauty and limits of human language and the ways in which we communicate.
