One-night-only reading at Douglas Morrisson Theatre

HAYWARD — A staged reading of Julia Cho’s “The Language Archive” is planned for July 30 at the Douglas Morrison Theatre.

The play is the third in this season’s “Bare Bones” staged reading series at the theater. In a bare bones presentation, actors read directly from the script, and the the staging does not include elaborate costumes, sets or props.

In “The Language Archive,” a linguist, George, is trying to record an elderly couple who may the last speakers of a dying language. The couple, Alta and Resten, aren’t speaking to each other, except in English.

George himself has trouble communicating, both with his wife and his assistant.

The play will have one reading, 8 p.m. July 30. Tickets are $10 and can be bought at 510-881-6777 or www.dmtonline.org. The theater is at 22311 N. Third St.
