“A raw, poignant, and deeply moving piece of excruciatingly honest storytelling.” – Irish Theatre Magazine

“This riveting…show from Brokentalkers…can transform an acutely personal story into something universal.” – The Irish Times

4 stars at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013
“Raw and at times close to the knuckle…bold in its execution and refreshingly honest.” – The Times

A real-life mother and son take a brave, unflinching look at their past and attempt to piece together the truth in the aftermath of a family tragedy. Breaking all theatrical conventions, Brokentalkers’ Feidlim Cannon and his mother, Ann, are joined onstage by their Dublin-based psychotherapist, Erich Keller, who guides them through an exploration of old memories, childhood recollections, and the different ways we can heal ourselves. Have I No Mouth is a moving and astonishingly unvarnished portrait of grief, and a celebration of the ever-changing relationship between a mother and son.

Dublin-based Brokentalkers are internationally acclaimed for their pioneering approach to theater. In Have I No Mouth, they continue to explore the world we live in with honesty, originality and humor.

Please note the play contains strong language.
