The Emery Community Arts Center on the University of Maine at Farmington campus plans to present Bess Wohl’s “Small Mouth Sounds” at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 6-8, at 7 p.m. at the Academy Street center.“Small Mouth Sounds” is a critically-acclaimed dramedy with origins off-Broadway, followed by a national touring show. The Farmington performance is directed by Gavin Pickering, LCPC, who serves as a mental health counselor at UMF.Filled with awkward and insightful humor, the play follows six strangers as they grapple with immense personal challenges at a hippie-dippie silent retreat. They are asked to abandon the comforts of their previous lives, take a deep breath, and connect with one another on a deeply human level. The silence speaks volumes.This show is recommended for ages 13 and older due to adult themes and language. Run time is around 90 minutes, without intermission.Cast includes Kyla Wheeler at the teacher, Lis Carlson, senior from Dover Foxcroft as Joan, Brianna Rush as Judy, Michaela Carney as Alicia, Peter Osborne as Ned, Trevor Hall as Rodney, and Jeffrey Thomson  as Jan. Performances are open to the public, with Thursday admission, pay what you want. Friday and Saturday admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students with ID. Tickets will be on sale at the door, first come first served.For more information contact Ann Bartges, director of UMF Emery Community Arts Center at [email protected] or 207-778-7461.
