Small Mouth Sounds by Bess Wohl

Directed by: Reese Overstreet

Assistant Directed by: Caiden Craddock

     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.
