“An important and arresting talent, Iizuka has infused Language of Angels with a humming, explosive energy— she uses language like a loaded weapon.” — Seattle Times
Language of Angels begins in a cave on the edge of a rural North Carolina town, where a young girl once went missing. One of nine friends is responsible for her death, yet her ghostly, echoed cries will haunt each of them forever. The story unfolds and morphs into a multi-layered musing on grief, loss, guilt and karma as the missing girl's life and death reveals itself one piece at a time. Hidden beneath a haunting and mysterious exterior, Language of Angels is ultimately a touching and deeply heartfelt play. As the surviving friends come to terms with their own mortality, they must also face the truth about their childhood and the regret and guilt their mistakes have caused them.
