Precious Little

by Madeleine George
as part of the Dramatic Works Series at the Vancouver Fringe Festival

“A crisp, fast-moving, tough-minded but often comic play about love, language, memory, culture and commitment.”

Brodie, a gifted linguist, learns unsettling news about the baby she carries. Unable to get comfort from her girlfriend, she finds it in the two least likely sources imaginable: the elderly speaker of a vanishing language…and a gorilla at the zoo. Madeleine George’s irreverent and charming new play reveals the beauty and the limits of human language.
