New $35 tickets released for EVERY SHOW!
“Barrington Stage Company finishes a stellar season with its final mainstage offering, an insightful and nuanced production of “English,” which ran off-Broadway last year and five months ago won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.” —Albany Times Union
“It is a play I urge you to see. The playwright’s work is delicate and delectable and her acting is simply super. She joins an excellent company and the result is a very winning play, beyond just the Pulitzer.” —Berkshire Bright Focus
Barrington Stage Company takes immense pride in bringing the 2023 Pulitzer Prize-winning play English, by Sanaz Toossi, to the stage. This thought-provoking production delves into the lives of four students who, while hailing from the same native language background, come together in an Iranian classroom to prepare for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) proficiency exam. Amid the unique challenge of mastering a new language, their journey unfolds against the backdrop of a single, compelling rule: “English Only!” As they navigate the complexities of language acquisition, English explores the power of communication, connection, and the shared human experience, reflecting the universal struggles and the unique nuances of embracing a new linguistic identity.
