Mute

Rendered mute by post-traumatic stress disorder, a teenaged girl, Jenna lives alone with her brother and her memories. A social worker arrives to assess the family, bearing the news that if Adam cannot prove that his sister is improving in his care, the siblings will be separated.

Winner of Best New Play at the 2007 Victoria Fringe Festival. Sold-out shows at the Toronto Fringe Festival.

This three-hander runs 45 minutes, and has only one set, so it’s a great piece for touring, for Fringe Festivals, or even for a high school audience.

Some reviews:

“This is a ‘best of’ Fringe’ contender…This thespian trio brings such intensity to their individual characters that no audience member will fail to be personally touched by their powerful portrayals…‘MUTE’ is a MUST-SEE!”
-Ontario Arts Review

A “delicate, well-written play”.
