‘Small Mouth Sounds’ play coming to Upper Jay Art Center

UPPER JAY – “Small Mouth Sounds,” a a play by Bess Wohl, will take the stage at the Upper Jay Art Center on July 11,12,13,17,18,19 and 20 at 8 p.m. and at 3 p.m. Sunday, July 14.

In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six characters looking for spiritual renewal embark on a five day 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.

“Small Mouth Sounds feels like a holiday outing, a minimalist piece of experimental theater that casts the audience as voyeurs in an entertaining adventure that gradually darkens into tragedy.” – Variety
