Acclaimed playwright Naomi Iizuka's Language of Angels weaves together a series of eerie ghost stories in a Rashomon-like tale of a disappearance. This haunting production from The Cuckoo's Theater Project and RedTwist Theater begins in a cave on the edge of a rural North Carolina town, where a young girl once went missing. One of nine friends is responsible for her death, yet her ghostly, echoed cries will haunt each of them forever. It makes for a deeply human story of working-class youth bound by poverty and pushed to the limits of friendship as they deal with grief and loss.

"...Though it stumbles out of the gate, this production from the Cuckoo's Theater Project in collaboration with Redtwist Theatre can be delightfully suspenseful. Moody lighting plays up the huddling-around-the-campfire-feel, which is an asset here. A live music component tends to be disagreeable, but it's somewhat redeemed by standout acting and direction, the latter by Marc James, who deserves credit for deftly navigating lots of bodies in a cozy space."
