Small Mouth Sounds

Round House Theatre
4545 East-West Highway Bethesda

Have you ever wanted to just escape the noise? Six people fleeing from city life meet in the overwhelming quiet of the woods to embark on a silent retreat in the new play Small Mouth Sounds. As these strangers confront their demons, both large and small, their vows of silence collide with the human need to connect with one another. An Off-Broadway hit, the play comes from Drama Desk Award winner Bess Wohl and is directed by Ryan Rilette. Using awkward and insightful humor, this compassionate and funny work at Round House Theatre in Bethesda asks how we address life's biggest questions when there's no way to ask them.

"...The silence of Small Mouth Sounds intensifies the emotional impact of every dramatic or comedic moment on stage. Initially, it may be harder to know where the action is onstage but no matter where you look on stage, Small Mouth Sounds delivers engaging theatre."

DC Metro Theater Arts - Recommended

"...Still (pun intended), Small Mouth Sounds is a rare theatrical experience that not only invites us to think our own thoughts along with the characters but leaves us quiet time to do so. And whether we experience such shared quietude as transcendent or a send-up, this semiserious comedy generously leaves up to us."

"...This performance was an emotional triumph that truly took the audience on a personal journey along with the cast. I’d strongly recommend taking this journey yourself, if only to remind yourself that you are not alone."

"...For each of these plays’ duration, we are asked to turn it down and tune into the silences that either fill us with peace or paw at our uncertainties and disquiet. Small Mouth Sounds, with its gentle humor and compassion, reveals to us the many ways in which words get in the way."
