Small Mouth Sounds

Written by Bess Wohl
Directed by Rachel Chavkin

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

Direct from its critically acclaimed, sold-out engagement at Ars Nova, home to New York’s most groundbreaking and experimental new theatrical works, SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS returns to New York for 14 weeks only. It’s the quiet show that everyone is talking about, and now for a limited time you have a second chance to see this uplifting and uproarious new play 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). Time Out New York says it’s “as entertaining as it is transcendent.
