The Language Archive and Driving Miss Daisy Offer Bittersweet Fables

A new play from Julia Cho, an old one from Alfred Uhry

Esbjornson, to whom these two powerhouse performances undoubtedly owe something, has, like Redgrave, been discreet. He deploys extensive scenic apparatus, including projections by Wendall K. Harrington that paint the environment realistically, but does it with such skillful understatement that Uhry's lovely small-scale work feels enriched rather than overwhelmed.
