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 local zoo.
Leaping into the nature of language, linguistics and love this is a dark comedy exploring the power of words and what we must create when they’re lacking. Join a cast of three women, nine characters and a gorilla in this intergenerational, and interspecies, look at how humans communicate: its chatter, it’s drive, it’s hunger and it’s longing.
Navi Collaborative and Precious Little
Precious Little, started as a passion project of Courtney Eggleton’s, a little seed that grew into one of our most successful seasons. People say it takes a village to raise a child and we couldn’t be more proud of the show we built as a team. Precious Little creates dialogue around disability, sexuality, gender and age. Communicating these messages with audiences and Basement Theatre was a thrilling experience and as a company gave us room to do what we love which is to create art that explores deeply human moments.
