English (Off-Broadway, Atlantic Theater Company/Linda Gross Theater, 2022) | Playbill


A Co-Production with Roundabout Theatre Company

SYNOPSIS: “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.
