Small Mouth Sounds

Small Mouth Sounds

Press video  

In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward and insightful humor, Small Mouth Sounds is the unique and compassionate new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. This 2016 Critics’ Pick (The New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Out New York) was written by Drama Desk Award winner Bess Wohl (Pretty Filthy) and directed by Obie Award winner Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812).

Direct from its critically acclaimed, return engagement at New York’s Pershing Square Signature Center, the quiet show that everyone was talking about made its way to audiences across the country.  

Who’s Who in the Cast: The ensemble taking Small Mouth Sounds across the US includes Connor Barrett as Jan, Ben Beckley as Ned, Edward Chin-Lyn as Rodney, Brenna Palughi as Alicia, Socorro Santiago as Joan, Cherene Snow as Judy, and Orville Mendoza as the Teacher.
