The Astonished Heart

by NoŽl Coward
February 11th to 15th, 2015
FORREST NICKERSON THEATRE
285 Pembina Hwy (South of Confusion Corner)

Discover the love life and untimely death of psychiatrist Christian Faber: a role originally performed by NoŽl Coward in London, New York, and a 1950 feature film!

In Chris Faber's drawing room sit his wife and assistants, awaiting the siren Leonora in answer to his death-bed call.

Four flashbacks unravel the love triangle between doctor, wife, and mistress – a woman who set out to capture her best friend's husband, and was herself ensnared. Returning to the present, we witness the play's final, shocking conclusion.

A gripping drama, from the producer of "Augustus Does His Bit" (ShawFest 2012) and "A Marriage Proposal" / "The Anniversary" (ChekhovFest 2014).

"The basis of everything I've ever learned is not being sure – not being sure of anyone or anything in the world – myself least of all..."
