Small Mouth Sounds - 2017 - US Tour Tickets, News, Info & More

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 humor, this strange and compassionate new play asks how we address life's biggest questions when words fail us.

The New York Times called Small Mouth Sounds "an enchanting new play... as funny as it is quietly moving... a model of ingenuity" and the show was chosen as a "Best Of" Theater Pick in the New York Times, New York Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, New York Post, and more.
