Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths

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….

A Tron production in association with National Theatre of Scotland
A collaboration with The Traverse Theatre and Tron Theatre. A three way partnership conceived to create more opportunities to put new plays centre stage.
