Marigold’s research into beetles is unparalleled but as a deaf woman 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. “A deaf elegy for the hearing world, a clever self-validating work, where the deaf lead character (and theatre-maker) dissects and rejects the ableism of ‘trying to fix’ deaf people. What makes it a subtle work of genius, is that it is all wrapped up in a satisfying and authentic 1920’s domestic drama” – Neurodiverse Review

“An engaging and classy lesson to all of us to remain true to ourselves and search for beauty in unexpected places” – Broadway Baby
