Have I no mouth is a powerful piece of Theatre that explores the changing nature of the relationship between a mother and son in the aftermath of a family tragedy. Written and performed by Feidlim Cannon and his mother Ann, the production takes a brave, unflinching look at their past and attempts to piece together the truth, whilst exploring different ways we heal ourselves after the unthinkable happens. Ann and Feidlim are joined on stage by professional psychotherapist Erich Keller.
Have I no mouth is a devised performance incorporating Brokentalkers’ trademark style of mixing documentary material with breathtaking theatricality, which has established them as one of most important theatre companies to emerge in Ireland in recent years.
