A modern flat where a middle-class family lives, the day is like today. Arzu lost one of a pair of Marrylou mitt made of silk cashmere and is incessantly in search of it. What a weird country this is! Everything and everybody continuously disappear.   ‘Language’ talks about  the daily life of a social class which is about to disappear, from a grotesque perspective. The play mixes the colloquial language with the register of politics and scents out the loss in a fantastic atmosphere. ‘Language’ has a very keen understanding of humour and introduces a brand new and brave perspective to the field of playwriting.
