WINNER! 2022 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play! “English Only.” That’s the mantra of Marjan, an English teacher in Karaj, Iran struggling to prepare her four students to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language. The exam has life-changing implications for each classmate, but between the word games and show-and-tell sessions, one student seems set on derailing the lesson plan. With wit, wisdom, and compassion, award-winning playwright Sanaz Toossi’s new comedy uses language as a lens to explore identity, heritage, and community.

RUN TIME: Approx. one hour and forty-five minutes with no intermission.
