The Broken Heart Story


The Broken Heart Story is a story of art and love. It delves into questions of identity, choices, and how to live to achieve happiness. The rainy world of the play bubbles with humour and a light touch in the face of big questions. To be a subject or an object, wonders a whiskered woman, with a cat´s skull in her hand.
