Small Mouth Sounds

Written by Bess Wohl

Directed by Argo Thompson

This unique and compassionate new play asks how do we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.

In the overwhelming quiet of the forrest, 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.
