Mouth to Mouth is Kevin Elyot's second play for the Royal Court. His first, My Night With Reg , transferred from the Theatre Upstairs to the West End and has since been produced around the world. His other works include Coming Clean at the Bush Theatre and The Day I Stood Still, at the Royal National Theatre.

Synopsis: A garden in Balham - late summer. Laura and Frank, old friends make desultory small talk over the sound of birds, lawnmovers and children playing. Unmentioned yet ever present between them is a tragedy that unfolded the previous summer, a tragedy resulting from tempestuous and hidden passions, a tragedy for which Frank feels a guilt he cannot admit to.
