Marion Leatherby is 92 years old, and deaf. One glorious day, her best friend Carmella gives her a hearing trumpet. Upon returning home, Marion overhears her family plotting to send her away to a retirement home, and together, Marion and Carmella plan their great escape. 

Based on the novel by Leonora Carrington, "The Hearing Trumpet" is Dark Matter Theatre's first creation. We use clown, mask to create a surreal and magical performance which questions where reality ends and imagination begins. "The Hearing Trumpet" has toured Paris, London and Barcelona.
