NEW YORK TIMES CRITIC’S PICK
TIME OUT NEW YORK CRITIC’S PICK
NEW YORK MAGAZINE CRITIC’S PICK

After a sold-out national tour, this 2016 New York Times Critics’ Pick will take on new life here at the Jungle. In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six wildly disparate urbanites embark on a silent retreat. The Huffington Post calls it, “a play unlike any other;” Variety claims it’s “flawless.” Filled with awkward and insightful humor, Drama Desk Award-winner Bess Wohl’s Small Mouth Sounds is the unique and compassionate new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.

  • Drama

This award-winning drama by Wendy Kesselman explores the true story of two sisters who murdered their employer and her daughter in 1930s France. What drove these two young women, who served as maids in the household, to such a desperate act? Class conflict, family dysfunction, loneliness, and love all play a role in this complex and devastating tale. The story of Christine and Léa Papin has spawned more than two dozen books, plays, and movies. What drew Theatre Pro Rata to Kesselmans script is the way it gives the sisters humanity. The production's designers are playing with a very haute couture aesthetic: Were digging in to the nightmare of it, which is very tantalizing, says director Carin Bratlie Wethern.

  • Experimental

A new piece about apocalypse, chaos, and hope.
A taxonomy of failed utopian impulses.
A cycle of nostalgic atrophy.
The urge to transcend cyclic utopian collapse.
Tenderness, danger, migration, apocalyptic beauty.
Drawing into rather sharp relief our cultural desire for a simple, singular answer.
Toward a pursuit of possibility.
How we might reorganize the vast detritus of the world to build some semblance of safety and then pleasure.
We are living in the space of that edge right now.

Featuring performances from Erika Hansen, Megan Mayer, Felipe Mafasoli, and Charles Campbell.
Installation by Jess Kiel-Wornson.
Sound design and original music by Mike Hallenbeck.
Lighting by Heidi Eckwall.

Obstructed views only!
