It is with regret that Auckland Arts Festival has announced the cancellation of the season of Mouthpiece at Q Theatre effective immediately. These are unprecedented times we are currently experiencing.

Auckland Arts Festival has been continually re-assessing the Festival shows and events in line with the various announcements being made by Government, and keeping the health and wellbeing of artists, staff, crew and audiences to the fore.

A number of international artists, including the cast of Mouthpiece, are impacted by flight cancellations and impending border closures in their home countries and the Festival has a commitment to get them home to their families and loved ones.

Cancelling Mouthpiece, and other shows, has been a major blow for Auckland Arts Festival and the artists. Please consider donating part or all of the value of your ticket to support the Festival. Those who wish to donate can email
