PuSh International Performing Arts Festival presents:
Have I No Mouth
By Brokentalkers (Dublin, Ireland)
Feidlim Cannon's father died 11 years ago; his death could have been prevented. Have I No Mouth is the heartbreaking true story that explores the aftermath of familial loss that reverberates between Feidlim and his mother Ann, who appears on stage with him, along with their real-life psychotherapist.
This achingly intimate work balances precariously on a knife's edge between comedy and trauma, bringing the audience along on a journey to acceptance. Under the guidance of their therapist, Feidlim and Ann take an unflinching look at their fraught relationship, portrayed by anecdotes and re-creations of childhood memories. Have I No Mouth delivers catharsis to mother and son, and to contemporary theatre practice.
"A raw, poignant and deeply moving piece of excruciatingly honest storytelling, delivered with simplicity and poise." - Irish Theatre Magazine
