An Act of Pluffie and BergARTS presented:



Played at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival


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.



"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


"Mute became increasingly emotional and I had great desire for the characters to find happiness in their lives...I thought all three cast members were extremely strong and brought the depths of their characters to life."
