Straight To The Heart – Opens at The Arts Theatre – Preview – 10th October – 28th October 2016


Three short, heart-felt plays by Ken Jaworowski, an American playwright.

Pulse – One To The Head – a son tells of confronting his father about his sexuality; a father teaches his son to stand up to bullies with lasting consequences and a daughter takes her father on one last trip.

One To The Heart –  One to the Heart – a father’s dream of a large family is set aside by the financial burden of caring for a disabled child, or is it?

The Truth Tellers – a night out for two lonely people, will their lies keep them apart?

In each play the characters’ alternating monologues lead you on an unexpected journey.

Alistair Brown, Nadia Shash and Daniel Simpson, under the direction of Alex Dmitriev, perform in each of the three plays.
