Kieran Hurley's Mouthpiece Soho Theatre tickets on sale now!
After a critically acclaimed run last year at the Traverse Theatre, Kieran Hurley's hit new play Mouthpiece has transferred to the Soho Theatre this spring for its official London premiere. Best known for his award-winning play, Beats, Scottish playwright Kieran Hurley is widely regarded as one of the UK's biggest emerging talents to watch, which is why you don't want to skip this limited engagement at the Soho this April and May.
What is the Mouthpiece play about?
Twilight engulfs the Edinburgh horizon at Salisbury Crags. A woman takes a fateful step forward whilst a teenager pulls her back to safety. Little do they know that their lives will be changed forever.
Libby spends her days cafe hopping in New Town, still claiming to be a writer. Declan is a young artist with loads of potential but suffers from a complicated home life. The pair form an unlikely friendship made difficult by their clash of cultures and classes. When Libby identifies a weak spot that could help salvage her career and truly make a difference, we are left to wonder whether friendship is possible with someone we choose to exploit.
Mouthpiece is a brutally honest tale filled with sharp humour that will catch you off guard when you least expect it. It offers a piercing look into the lives of two very different people who live in the same city yet seem worlds apart.
