Following on from a successful run at the Edinbrugh Fringe, Time & Again Theatre Company are proud to present Earwig!

Marigold’s research into beetles is unparalleled but as a deaf woman living in 1927, her work is ignored. Earwig combines the weird, wonderful world of entomology with Marigold’s fight to be heard amidst flappers, jazz and an overbearing husband. Funny and fast-paced new writing incorporating illustrated projections in the style of 1920s silent movies! Earwig explores what it meant to be deaf in the early 20th century against the art deco decadence of the inter-war years.
