“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 souls looking for answers 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 try to hook up while struggling to meditate without snacks), 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.

Please note: This production contains male nudity of a non-sexual nature.
