Anana Johnson’s father editor of the prestigious North American Dictionary of the English Language abruptly gives her the code name ALICE, hands her a bottle of pills, and disappears without a trace. Thus Anana and her colleague Bart find themselves thrust into an underground movement of wordsmiths dedicated to preserving not only the Dictionary but language itself from a mysterious virus that is slowly erasing words from electronic devices and their human users. But if they can’t find her father before the “word flu” erupts into a pandemic, words will no longer convey any meaning at all and the English language may be lost forever. A world premier play based on the novel The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon.
