The first day of school is never easy, especially when you are mute and have a nasty bully hurling insults your way. Though Rowena Batts was born "with some bits missing" from her throat, she’s trying her best to prove she’s just like everyone else. Unfortunately after a heated exchange with the class bully, she finds herself locked in a cupboard before the morning has passed. Performed by the hilarious and enthusiastic Mary-Anne Fahey, Blabber Mouth is the funny story of intrepid Rowena and her attempts to fit in at her new school.
Now here I am, locked in the stationery cupboard.
Is it because she's just stuffed a grog into Darryn Peck's mouth?
Or is it because of her Dad?
