The Hearing Trumpet

Writer - in development

A surrealist and fantastic journey, telling the story of 92-year old Marian Letherby, who receives the gift of a hearing trumpet only to discover that her family has been plotting to have her committed to an institution.  Surreal, comedic, apocalyptic; a play that erupts our perceptions of the old and dying and asks us to reimagine the afterlife.   

Adapted from Leonora Carrington's novel by the same title                          

Written by Coleen MacPherson

Performed and Devised by Fauve Bickerstaffe and Jayne Walling

Directed by Javier Ariza Barcina
