An Obie Award-Winning “rich new play, contemplative and comic” (New York Times Critics’ Pick).

“English Only.” Four adult students in Karaj, Iran are studying for the Test of English as a Foreign Language—the key to their green card, medical school admission or family reunification. Chasing fluency through a maze of word games, listening exercises and show-and-tell sessions, they hope that one day, English will make them whole. But it might be splitting them each in half. Hailed as “a rich new play, contemplative and comic” (New York Times’ Critics’ Pick), English is “both a buoyant comedy of communication and an exploration of what it means to speak and feel understood” (New York Theatre Guide).
