Small Mouth Sounds
In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. Filled with awkward humor, this strange and compassionate new play asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. The critically-acclaimed Ars Nova production of Bess Wohl's Small Mouth Sounds returns this summer at The Pershing Square Signature Center. Directed by Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre...), Small Mouth Sounds was featured in The New York Times as one of ‘The Best Theater of 2015’. Charles Isherwood’s Critics’ Pick review called it “an enchanting new play... as funny as it is quietly moving... a model of ingenuity.” The Hollywood Reporter, the New York Post, and The Guardian also listed Small Mouth Sounds in their Best of 2015 roundups, with The Advocate lauding it as the #1 Best Show in their ‘Top 10 New York Theater of 2015’. Previews began July 3, 2016 at The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street), with an opening night set for July 13, 2016.
