Cloven Tongues

When Lela, a woman with an unknown past, is arrested and held at the border, she is taken in by Jenny, a social worker, and Ronald, a priest, who find it takes nothing less than a miracle to unlock her deepest secrets.  As Lela's brutal personal history is revealed, Jenny and Ronald struggle with how best to heal her and find that they must also come to terms with their reasons for trying to help her in the first place.


A riveting drama about the effects of sex trafficking and war, Cloven Tongues is a fierce, biting play about the power and limitations of communication, altruism, and faith.  Rendered with unapologetic grace under the brave direction of Michelle Bossy, it is sure to be a compelling work of theater.



Cloven Tongues makes its world premiere at The Wild Project in NYC in November 2013.
