Bess Wohl's Small Mouth Sounds Extends Return Engagement
Rachel Chavkin directs the production at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
An extension has been announced for the return off-Broadway engagement of Bess Wohl's Small Mouth Sounds, playing at the Pershing Square Signature Center. The production, which was originally set to play through September 25, will now close on October 9.
The production features original cast members Marcia DeBonis (Homeland), Jojo Gonzalez (The Romance of Magno Rubio), Brad Heberlee (These Paper Bullets), and Babak Tafti (The North Pool). Rounding out the cast are Zoë Winters (Red Speedo), Max Baker (The Village Bike), Carmen Zilles (Scenes From a Marriage), James Seol (Around the World in 80 Days), and Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined).
Small Mouth Sounds returns to New York following its extended run at Ars Nova in 2015. Directed by Rachel Chavkin, the play is described as follows: "In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect."
The original design team, returning for the summer production, includes Laura Jellinek (scenic design), Tilly Grimes (costume design), Mike Inwood (lighting design), Stowe Nelson (sound design), Andrew Schneider (projection design), and Noah Mease (prop design).
