A sizzling hot verse play by David Wright, with an assist from his buddies Will Shakespeare, Mighty Chris Marlowe, “The Benster” Jonson, Queen Elizabeth (the First, of course), and many other wanton wordsmiths.

February 9th -February 25th

Isaac Studio Theater at Taproot Theater in Greenwood

Four people meet at a resort at the edge of the world. They fall in and out of love, woo and argue… all while speaking some of the best (and some of the worst!) love poetry ever written. When Love Speaks is the perfect Valentine and delightful antidote to the grey days of February in Seattle.



After an intermission, each performance will be followed by a short reading of contemporary love poetry, chosen and read by playwright David Wright (February 9, the matinee on the 11th, and the 13th), or local poets Elizabeth Austen (February 23rd, 24th and the evening performance on the 25th), Alex Gallo-Brown, (February 10th and the evening of the 11th), Peter Pereira (February 17th, 18th, and the matinee on the 25th), and Lena Khalaf Tuffaha (February 14th).
