“Wit, compassion, and sparkle . . . the sound of silence onstage has rarely made such sweet music!”
The New York Times
On a weeklong silent retreat in the woods, six wildly disparate urbanites looking for life balance find that staying quiet doesn’t necessarily bring inner peace. An acclaimed new comedy from Drama Desk Award–winning playwright Bess Wohl, Small Mouth Sounds is a wickedly sharp look at mindfulness and the wellness industry.
Under the eye of an unseen guru, six people have gathered to get away from it all. But as they listen to their leader’s ruminations (and struggle to meditate while clumsily fighting their most primal of urges), they learn that silence can indeed be golden. It can also be funny, frustrating, erotic, comforting, and profoundly passive-aggressive. Small Mouth Sounds won over audiences and critics alike off Broadway, and its intimate and imaginative storytelling is perfect for The Strand Theater.
