    Daniel Kitson’s ‘Mouse’ Tells Its Tales Over a Speakerphone

    Ben Brantley

    November 13, 2016: Try tracking all the conversations going on in Daniel Kitson’s “Mouse: The Persistence of an Unlikely Thought,” which opened on Sunday at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, and your mind will probably short-circuit. There is, to start with the obvious, the dialogue between the title creature (of unknown gender) of this solo performance piece and the woman (of unspecified name) who discovers it on her staircase. The account of this fictional exchange — which may or may not be as one-sided as you would expect — is delivered into a speakerphone in the wee, small hours of the morning. It comes from the deviser of the mouse-meets-woman narrative, a bespectacled and bearded fellow with an aggressively defensive mien. That’s William, a writer, who occupies a rented warehouse room he calls his office.
