Performed in English with select performances in Persian (Farsi), EARWORM, a Nowadays Theatre production in association with Crow’s Theatre, is written and directed by Mohammad Yaghoubi. Homa, a long-time immigrant from Iran who fled persecution from the Islamic regime, must negotiate the reality that her son is in love with a conservative Muslim woman. When Homa’s past catches up to her in present-day Toronto, their future happiness is threatened.

Inspired by real events, EARWORM is a stunning depiction of the far-reaching impact of the Iranian revolutions of 1979 and 2022 through themes of love, power, parenting, and political asylum. (
