The Alliance Theatre brings this Off-Broadway hit to Atlanta!

According to AllianceTheatre.org:
"In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six strangers in search of serenity meet at a silent wellness retreat for what they hope will be a life-changing five-day experience.  Guided by an unseen guru, they are challenged to abandon technology and reset.  As they confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward and insightful humor, Small Mouth Sounds is a unique and compassionate new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. This Off-Broadway hit comedy and 2016 Critics’ Pick (The New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Out New York) is written by Drama Desk Award winner Bess Wohl (Pretty Filthy) and directed by Alliance Artistic Director Susan V. Booth (Ever After, Native Guard). The New York Times says, “It leaves you moved, refreshed and even enlightened.” And The Huffington Post calls it “a play unlike any other.”"
 
According to TimeOut New York:
“Though it employs very little dialogue, there’s nothing quiet about Small Mouth Sounds. Bess Wohl’s luminous play uses silence to dig into the core of human pain, which, like everything unendurable, can also be very funny…The play asks—and admirably never quite answers—deep questions about how we connect with other people, a feat that the characters achieve through channels both profound and silly. Wohl isn’t afraid to let the ridiculous rub up against the sublime, and it makes Small Mouth Sounds as entertaining as it is transcendent.”
