Driftwood Players present ‘The Language Archive’

The Aberdeen Driftwood Players have opened their production of “The Language Archive,” written by Julia Cho and directed by Judy Dossett — with director-in-training Julayne Fleury.

The play is a dramatic comedy in two acts and is a unique blend of absurdist farce with sentimental comedy.

George is a man consumed with preserving and documenting the dying language of far-flung cultures. Closer to home, language is failing him. He doesn’t know what to say to his wife to keep her from leaving him, and he doesn’t recognize the deep feelings that his lab assistant has for him.

Remaining performance dates are: Friday and Saturday, Dec. 9-10 and Friday-Sunday, Dec. 16-18. Friday and Saturday curtain time is 7:30 p.m., while the lone Sunday matinee curtain time is 1:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 and are available at

Tickets can also be purchased at these outlets: Valu Drug in Montesano, City Center Drug in Aberdeen, Harbor Drug in Hoquiam and Delores’ and Fay’s in Ocean Shores. Tickets can also be purchased at the door if available.

Rush tickets are available the night of the performance for $10 for students presenting a student ID card.
