A passionate encounter between a grieving mother and a troubled soldier just back from France illuminates Wild Mouth, a new play by Maureen Hunter. Anna is a British-born immigrant who returns to her brotherŐs prairie farm in 1917 to help with the harvest and to try to heal. There she meets Bohdan, a young man of Ukrainian descent who changed his name to Smith in order to get to the front. AnnaŐs desperation to understand her sonŐs death propels both of them to the edge of an abyss. This seven-character play explores the enduring connections between love and war, beauty and horror, creation and destruction.
