Dirty Market are taking over Theatre Delicatessen’s Old Library in Burgess Park with a radical theatre adaptation of Surrealist Leonora Carrington’s novel The Hearing Trumpet. With live music and animation, ancient monsters and psychoanalysts, join Dirty Market on a weird and wonderful journey through The Old Library for a joyful celebration of outcasts and rebels.

Opening on Carrington’s centenary, 6 April 2017, we meet 92-year old Marian who is deaf and lost in her memories. Dumped in a sinister care home, Marian finds herself amongst a band of rebellious elderly inmates. With live music and animation, ancient monsters and psychoanalysts, join Dirty Market on a weird and wonderful journey through The Old Library for a celebration of outcasts and rebels.

Dirty Market’s The Hearing Trumpet is the UK’s first major theatre adaptation of Carrington’s work; known for her paintings inspired by myth, female sexuality, and autobiography.
