April / May 2017
“One of the bravest shows I’ve ever seen…You should definitely go & see Have I No Mouth”
Multi-award-winning Irish theatre company Brokentalkers have built a reputation as one of the most important and innovative theatre companies to emerge in Ireland in recent years. This spring, they bring their award-winning work Have I No Mouth back home to tour across Ireland for the first time, following critical acclaim in Europe, America and Australia.
Have I No Mouth is written and performed by Brokentalkers’ Feidlim Cannon and his mother Ann. They are joined onstage by professional 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.
