January 22 - February 24, 2013
This fascinating and erotic play from Australia pays homage to film noir. Nine parallel lives – interlocked by four infidelities, one missing person and a mysterious stiletto – are woven through a series of fragmented confessionals where the lines between right and wrong become dangerously blurred. Bovell delves into secrets and lies revealing a darker side of human nature. A thoroughly modern mystery, Speaking in Tongues twists and turns in spooky and unexpected ways.
Bovell co-wrote the screenplay for Baz Luhrmann’s hit movie, Strictly Ballroom.
