Target Margin Theater
Second Language


February 17 – March 5, 2011


Produced in association with the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center.

English as a Second Language; English is a Second Language; every language is a Second Language. Second Language negotiates the margins of communication, where we all meet, because nobody really understands anybody, and every language is an improvised bridge. Our new project brings Target Margin professional actors and designers together with students from LaGuardia Community College to create an original play about how we talk to each other, how we read each other, and how we fail to.

Directed by David Herskovits.
