Pulp becomes palpable when two contemporary characters enter the world of a trashy romance novel in Her Aching Heart. Harriet and Molly just happen to both be reading the same book, the steamy Her Aching Heart, when their imaginations transport them right into the Victorian world of the trashy tale. Transformed into the wicked Harriet Hellstone and the saintly Molly Penhallow, the women indulge in bodice-ripping affairs, encounter absurd characters and are swept up in passions of epic proportions. Tony-nominated playwright Bryony Lavery has loaded this farce with songs, miracles and send-ups of countless cliches, each one funnier than the last. Lee Mikeska Gardner directs two actresses who portray every character -- males included -- in this witty and riveting comedy from The Nora Theatre Company. Learn More

All six of us enjoyed the superb performance of Cambridge Central Theater from the second row (yes our tickets were that great!). We were taken on heart breaking journey. Also we were very lucky to meet the special guest after the performance- Ela Weissberger was 11 years old when she participated in original Brundibar production at the nazi concentration camp in Terezin at 1943. She is also one of very few survivors. Her story is the one that is treasured and passed on to generation. Thank you Goldstar for landing news of this wonderful event in my email inbox :-)
