Swollen Tongues

T622246222
Written entirely in rhyming couplets, Swollen Tongues is a contemporary take on Restoration comedy - with a twist! Thomas and his sister, Catherine, are both instructed in the powers of poetry by Dr Wise. While Thomas is more prolific than skilled in his praise of his beloved Sonja, Catherine is strangely mute. The problem? Catherine is in love with Sonja too, and has taken the liberty of effectively improving her brother's verses and giving them to Sonja under an assumed name, Overripe. When Thomas discovers that he has been plagiarised, Dr Wise suggests a challenge of poetic skill. The ensuing flurry of disguises, tricks and revelations includes a visit to a Sapphic hideaway, closer to home than anyone might have imagined. Here, the characters discover that no one is without secrets, and that poetry can unlock the door to love in unexpected ways.
