Slowgirl by Greg Pierce.
Becky is 17, gregarious, and a nonstop chatterer. She comes to visit her reclusive, uncommunicative uncle Sterling, who has lived in the Costa Rican jungle for almost a decade. Although they seem to have little in common, it soon becomes clear that both are refugees. What they have taken refuge from is revealed layer by layer as each tries, often hilariously, to understand the person hidden behind a screen of silence, in one case, and words, in the other.
Susan Horowitz directs our cast, which includes Natalie Kropf and Dan Hanson, with stage directions read by Beverly Newman. After the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play, led by Betsy Ungar.
