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.
