“A joyous and emotional piece of theatre, not to be missed”
Marigold’s research into beetles is unparalleled but as a deaf woman in 1927, her work is ignored.
Following on from the success of Greyhounds and Clouds, Time & Again Theatre Company roar into the Twenties with their brand new show Earwig.
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, Earwig explores what it meant to be deaf in the early 20th century against the decadence of the inter-war years.
Alongside traditional spoken word, the show incorporates illustrated projections and captioning (in the style of 1920s silent movies) along with plenty of art deco flair!
This positive and empowering fictional drama is inspired by events of the period.
Earwig is written by Laura Crow, who is herself deaf and neurodivergent. Laura was also the writer and lead actor of Clouds, which was performed at The Swallow Theatre last summer.
The play comes to The Swallow Theatre direct from a full run at Assembly Front Room in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was awarded an Edinburgh Fringe Recovery Grant in June 2021.

Reviews of other Time and Again productions
The play itself is pretty much perfect
★★★★ Edinburgh Guide
A place and people so fully-formed and engaging that you find yourself reluctant to let go of them when the lights go out one last time.
