SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS By Bess Wohl
Presented by Speakeasy Stage Company | January 4 — February 2, 2018
Six strangers in search of serenity meet at a wellness retreat for what they all hope will be a life-changing five-day experience in this hit Off-Broadway comedy by Bess Wohl. In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, they attempt to abandon technology and observe a vow of silence while being guided by an unseen guru, who challenges them to confront internal demons and seek peace. Though it employs very little dialogue, there is definitely nothing quiet about Small Mouth Sounds, a luminous and compassionate new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.
