Reykjavík is a series of interconnected vignettes featuring charged interactions between tourists and the (sometimes supernatural) Icelandic locals. We eavesdrop on the private lives of lovers, hospitality workers, party goers, and even a really handsome bird or two. In “Tongues,” the Playhouse invites viewers to experience the tender blossoming of new love within the queer domestic space of Family Room.

On “Tongues,” Director Kent Kirkpatrick says the scene “reveals two men in a new romantic relationship as they share their most private and secret selves. It is a charming take on new love, but a sense of potential heartbreak is not far from the surface. In the first rushes of romance, it is somehow important to reveal the deeper, most private facts to the lover. These two men both reveal something they had never told another person before. The two lovers reveal their secrets and both come out as being ‘two people.’ But the question remains: will this be a long term relationship?”
