An evocative journey into the lives of four gay men, three Asians and one Caucasian. A Language of Their Own is a lyrical and dramatic meditation on the nature of love, desire, sexuality, and self-definition as the four men come together and drift apart in a series of interconnecting stories.

Followed by a Q & A session with playwright Chay Yew.

Presented as part of the City of Chicago’s Unity Month celebration, observed every September in commemoration of the 1963 March on Washington. Co-sponsored by the Chicago Commission on Human Relations’ Advisory Council on Asian Affairs and the Advisory Council on Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender Issues.
