More on Time & Again Theatre Company
Time & Again Theatre Company was formed in the summer of 2017, by Laura Crow, as a new young theatre company wishing to explore the vintage, historical and antiquarian in ways that are fresh and relevant for today.
“Greyhounds manages to capture the historical tale – life on the 1940s home front – with human experience (love, loss, unfilled potential) and merges these with political themes that are extremely relevant to modern life – the notion of ‘the other’, the morality of war and how society treats those with mental health conditions.” – Northern Soul
Time & Again have successfully completed two runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with their shows Greyhounds and Clouds, and recently won the Coliseum Pick of the Fringe award in Manchester leading to a performance on the main stage of the Oldham Coliseum.
They are currently rural and small-scale touring both shows around the UK.
