Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths

About Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths

World premiere
Tron Theatre in association with National Theatre of Scotland

A snake will always find a way in. And he has. We’ve been sleeping so long that he’s had a feast… And this snake has been devouring them all whilst you and I are asleep in the next room. We’ve been standing on their tiny bones the entire time.

With unseen ‘little mouths’ and the belching fumes of the local refinery as a backdrop, we find ourselves in the beguiling world of Ma and Pa who spend their time exchanging extraordinary and fantastic stories… until suddenly there is a knock at the door…

Venue: T1

Running time: 1h 20mins

Age Recommendation: 14+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
