Mouthpiece by Kieran Hurley
The hit of Traverse Theatre's winter season transfers to London.
Kieran Hurley's shocking and unexpectedly humorous
new play is a story of an unlikely friendship.
Salisbury Crags. Twilight. A woman takes a step forward into the air. A teenage boy pulls her back. Two lives are changed forever.
Libby whiles away her days in New Town cafes and still calls herself a writer. Declan is a talented young artist struggling with a volatile home. As they form an uneasy friendship, complicated by class and culture, Libby spots an opportunity to put herself back on track, and really make a difference.
Mouthpiece takes a frank and unflinching look at two different sides of a city that exist in ignorance of one another, and asks whether it's possible to tell someone else's story without exploiting them along the way.
Note: Contains frequent strong language, descriptions of violence, scenes of sexual nature and references to suicide. Strictly no latecomers.
