On stage at Shoreview Library: ‘Small Mouth Sounds’

Go to the Shoreview Library on Monday, June 3, at 7 p.m. for a theater presentation and discussion of the play “Small Mouth Sounds,” which is being presented at the Jungle Theater through June 16. Actors and teaching artists will read two scenes from the play, then lead a discussion of its themes, tying in current events, personal values and critical thinking. 

Written by Bess Wohl, “Small Mouth Sounds” is about six runaways from city life embarking on a silent retreat in the woods of upstate New York. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the human need to connect. Filled with awkward and insightful humor, “Small Mouth Sounds” is a unique new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.  

The event is presented by On Stage, a program that is designed to bring theater to a wider audience, and sponsored by Springboard for the Arts. On Stage has arranged for discount tickets to Jungle Theater’s production; attend the discussion to learn more. 

The library is located at 4560 Victoria St. N. The event is presented in partnership with East Side Freedom Library and funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
