Everything changes for intelligent but isolated widow Kay when she begins taking Italian lessons -- but not quite the way her daughter Penny had planned. Rather than the language, it's the unexpected love for her Italian teacher Fiore that pulls Kay back into the world. But when Penny begins to question Fiore's intentions, Kay is torn between the two people she loves. Is Penny justified in her suspicions about Fiore, a man closer to her age than her mother's? Or could Fiore be right that Penny seeks to sabotage their happiness in her jealousy and blind devotion to her late father? Emotions soar to the passionate heights of Italian opera as Kay confronts a wrenching decision.

Published Reviews

"Godfrey knows just how to mingle exposition with enough rising action to hold the rapt attention of an audience.[...] The dialogue is natural and witty, while the plot is intriguing and inventive. [...] Godfrey has a free-flowing pen when it comes to unexpected revelations."

Waterbury Republican

"Romance Language keeps the audience entertained and in suspense. [...] This decadent play will have the audience wishing for far-off lands, not wanting to return, but will ultimately bring them back... Lessons will be learned and boundaries will be pushed on this romantic journey."

TheaterScene

"Overflowing with lust and intrigue...the tragic interplay of love and money is a timeless theme onstage."
