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.

After its critically acclaimed, sold-out New York engagements, Small Mouth Sounds embarked on a multi-city national tour. Theatregoers nationwide got the chance to see this uplifting and uproarious new play written by Drama Desk Award winner BESS WOHL (Pretty Filthy) and directed by Tony Award nominee RACHEL CHAVKIN (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812). Time Out New York said it’s “as entertaining as it is transcendent.”
