Does the idea of a silent retreat in the woods fill you with joy or horror? In Bess Wohl's Small Mouth Sounds, six people escape city life for five days of distraction-free meditation, contemplation and healing: no smartphones and no small talk. Yet soon their need for human connection comes into conflict with their vows of silence. How do you speak your mind when you can't say a word?
This award-winning play from 2016 is both serious and absurd, and filled with awkward and insightful humour. Passport Theatre and the Finn-Brit Players are once again teaming up to bring you some excellent yet less-recognised voices in contemporary theatre.
