A two person show about a writer who seeks to make a comeback using a story that isn't her own.
Declan is a struggling artist and Libby is a writer lacking inspiration. When the pair form a friendship of sorts, Libby realises that seizing Declan's story could lead to great things for her. But is it her story to claim? A thought-provoking play about class and appropriation written by Kieran Hurley (Beats). Directed by Orla O’Loughlin, the former Traverse Theatre Artistic Director.
Basically, ‘Mouthpiece’ is a dream for the theatre nerd: it’s got heart, smarts, and something necessary and critical to say about both the artform itself and the unfairly unequal society we live in.'
