Culled from hours of interviews Speaking In Tongues: The Chronicles of Babel explores the oral histories of an extended family living in Chicago’s now demolished Washington Park housing project. Three generations come together to chronicle the complex story of their lives, the life of their building, and the impact of this uniquely American social experiment. Speaking In Tongues is not a fictionalized account of the urban poor. Utilizing a documentary style of staging, this play endeavors to preserve the authentic voices of a population that is seldom allowed to speak for itself in the American conversation.
