After a critically acclaimed London run, the gripping Traverse Theatre hit 'Mouthpiece' about class, culture and appropriation, returns with a new cast.
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
She needs his story. But does she have the right to it?
After a critically acclaimed London run, the gripping Traverse Theatre hit about class, culture and appropriation returns with a new cast.
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 in Pilton. 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.
Frank, unflinching and threaded with unexpected humour, Mouthpiece takes a look at two different sides of Edinburgh 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.
From the award-winning writer of Beats (now a motion picture) and directed by former Traverse Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin.
