He who picks his words well can turn the weakest argument into the strongest. Having enjoyed recent critically acclaimed sell-out seasons in New York and the Adelaide Festival, Valentjin Dhaenen’s thrilling companion piece to SmallWar at the Traverse returns to the Fringe for three performances only. Using fragments of well-known and lesser-known speeches in a virtuoso performance, BigMouth shows that, in 2,500 years, the tricks of the trade have hardly changed and that whilst the absolute truth doesn’t exist, it’s just a pretty lie for those who aspire to world power or simply just the hand of their beloved.
