Speaking In Tongues

  • Sunday, 17th Nov
  • 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
  • Prithvi Theatre - Prithvi

A powerful study of infidelity and interwoven lives, filmed as the award-winning Lantana.

Performance Note:

A police investigation leads to an uncomfortable and unexpected conclusion in this award-winning psychological drama. When a woman disappears, four marriages become entangled in a web of love, deceit, sex and death. Nine parallel lives – interlocked by four infidelities, one missing person and a mysterious red stiletto – are interwoven through a fragmented series of confessionals and interrogations that gradually reveal a darker side of human nature.  ‘Clever, provocative, elliptically resonant’ New York Times. Speaking in Tongues is also International Award-Winning Director Glenn Hayden’s inaugural Tata Literature Live production.
