In the middle of a French exam, 17 year old Charlie struggles to find the words to be true to his best friend…and himself.
Written and performed by Kim Ho and directed by Laura Scrivano, THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE is a wry, sensitive and moving account of a young man coming to terms with his sexuality and facing a life-changing decision.
Released in April 2013, THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE was the winner of the Audience Award at My Queer Career, Sydney Mardi Gras, 2014.
