Part of Performance Space 122's COIL 2014 Festival
Written and Directed by Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan
Performed by Ann Cannon, Feidlim Cannon, Erich Keller
A real-life mother and son take a brave, unflinching look at their past and attempt to piece together the truth in the aftermath of a family tragedy. In an innovatively theatrical performance, Brokentalkers’ Feidlim Cannon and his mother, Ann, are joined onstage by their Dublin-based psychotherapist, Erich Keller, who guides them through an exploration of old memories, childhood recollections, and the different ways we can heal ourselves. Have I No Mouth is a moving and astonishingly unvarnished portrait of grief, and a celebration of the ever-changing relationship between a mother and son.
Dublin-based Brokentalkers are internationally acclaimed for their pioneering approach to theater. In Have I No Mouth, they continue to explore the world we live in with honesty, originality and humor.
