This week: Mouthpiece

Startling, shocking and threaded with unexpected humour, Mouthpiece takes a frank and unflinching look at the different Edinburghs which often exist in ignorance of one another, and examines whether it’s possible to tell someone else’s story without exploiting them along the way. Written by Fringe First winner Kieran Hurley and directed by the Traverse’s Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin. Wed 5 - Sat 22 Dec.
