Kim is a bright and funny Jersey teen, who happens to look like a 72-year-old lady. And yet her aging disease may be the least of her problems.

ENGLISH
By Sanaz Toossi
Directed by Knud Adams
February 3 – March 13, 2022
Opening: Tuesday, February 22, 2022
Linda Gross Theater

Two words set in motion award-winning playwright Sanaz Toossi’s intricate and profound New York debut: “English Only.” This is the mantra that rules one classroom in Iran, where four adult students are preparing for the TOEFL — the Test of English as a Foreign Language. 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. This world premiere co-production will replace the previously announced Fall 2020 Roundabout Theatre Company production of English.
