'UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE' and 'FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON'
20 and 21 May 2018 at FEATS, Antwerp
2 June 2018 at Badhuistheater, Amsterdam
“The Universal Language” by David Ives, directed by John Kearey, and “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, directed by Emma de Moel.
David Ives spins hilarity out of words in “The Universal Language,” which brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, the language that will unite all humankind. First staged in New York City in November 1993.
'Flowers for Algernon' is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally retarded man, and the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse. Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his intelligence fourfold.
“Flowers for Algernon” lit up the Fringe stage in FEATS 2018, while “The Universal Language”, AATG’s Main Stage entry, was nominated for best actor and actress for the leading pair, and won an overall prize for 3rd place.
