Language of the Heart – a Citizen Change Theatre production

Language of the Heart“Sometimes a train wreck is just what your heart needs.”


When the train crashes, these people come together, share their secrets, and realize a train wreck may be just what their hearts needed.

Combining physical comedy with hard human reality, Gina Rose Powell creates a beautiful and surprisingly heightened comedy about how we can conquer our fears when we are finally seen and heard.

Going up July 2nd, 8 PM, at the Pico Union Project. Details/Tickets HERE.
