The Trapped Language of Love an Adorable Look at How Men and Women Fall Madly in Love

The Trapped Language of Love an Adorable Look at How Men and Women Fall Madly in Love

Playing at the NY Summerfest is the delightfully comedic The Trapped Language of Love. This short play, is one of four in the evening, but it is worth the whole night. Writer and actor Ronan Colfer has captured what goes on when the sexes fall madly and passionately in love with each other at first sight. Two people simply named He (Colfer) and She (Alexandra Bigourdan) meet on a park bench, both with a salad from Whole Foods. From the moment they meet there is chemistry, but neither has the everyday words, however when their subconscious takes over, it is poetry and bliss. The back and forth of the mundane and the sublime makes for hysterical interactions. Both Mr. Colfer and Ms. Bigourdan are so appealing that you root for their success. Unfortunately as quickly as we fall, we become disillusioned and fear intercedes. I would love to see three more of these pieces on various levels, as a whole evening.

Mr. Colfer is extremely talented both as an actor and as writer. Ms. Bigourdan is expressive, but both actors need to watch their French and Irish accents, as they get in the way.

The direction by Rebeca Castilho was smart, insightful and really allowed us in on the cleverness of the mind games at hand.

This charming and enchanting piece can be seen Sept. 8, 2017 @ 6:15pm and  Sept. 10, 2017 @ 8:30pm.

The Trapped Language of Love: NY Summerfest, Hudson Guild Theatre, 441 West 26th St.
