Walnut Street Theatre Announces Cast for Andrew Bovell's Speaking In Tongues
In Speaking in Tongues, four actors create nine characters whose lives intersect in seemingly random incidents throughout the play. These interactions reveal relationships in crisis and people who are not who they seem to be illustrating what happens when we make mistakes and have to live with the consequences.
The cast will include Ian Merrill Peakes (Pete/Nick/John), Karen Peakes (Jane/Sarah), Susan Riley Stevens (Sonja/Valerie) and William Zielinski (Leon/Neil).
The production team will be comprised of scenicdesigner Glen Sears, lighting designer Shon Causer, sound designer Paul Winnick, and costume designer Julia Poiesz.
Bovell received the AWGIE award for Best Stage Play in 1997 and has been repeatedly recognized for his work since.
