Two Hearts is a play about first love… and so much more.
Set on the third floor of an old inner city townhouse in Summer, they were single so… why not? This powerful play will have you reflecting on your own past relationships: what you did right, what you did wrong, what you wish you could re-live and what you wish you could forget. So many questions and regrets: about love, honesty, romance and subjects no one wants to discuss. If only, what if and why not? I like pondering hypotheticals. And they were delivered in Two Hearts in a very engaging way.
This play is dominated by two main characters and a third, whose role is undefined until the surprise ending. She interrupts and prompts and my companion said she found it annoying … until she realised why. The male commands undivided attention when he booms out 'I'm trying'. The theatre goes from laughdead deadly silence in a blink of an eye.
Credits Two Hearts was written by Laura Lethlean, a young Melbourne playwright and a founding member of The Anchor theatre company. Laura's work has been produced in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. Laura's play 'The Space Between the Fuel and the Fire' was published by No Passport Press in 2016.
