Following a sold-out run as part of Traverse Festival 2019, and having won the prestigious Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award, the gripping Traverse Theatre hit about class, culture and appropriation returns.
Salisbury Crags. Twilight. A woman takes a step forward into the air. A teenage boy pulls her back. Two lives are changed forever.
Libby whiles away her days in New Town cafes and still calls herself a writer. Declan is a talented young artist struggling with a volatile home on the city's outskirts. As they form an uneasy friendship, complicated by class and culture, Libby spots an opportunity to put herself back on track, and really make a difference. She needs his story. But does she have a right to it?
Frank, unflinching and threaded with unexpected humour, Mouthpiece takes a look at two different sides of Edinburgh that exist in ignorance of one another, and asks whether it’s possible to tell someone else’s story without exploiting them along the way.
From the award-winning writer of Beats (now a motion picture) and directed by former Traverse Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin.
