Theatre This Week: May 27 – June 2

By Heart

May 30 - Jun 2

In By Heart, Portuguese playwright and actor Tiago Rodrigues teaches a Shakespearean sonnet to 10 people from the audience. As the piece unfolds, the mystery that binds these tales together is revealed. By Heart is about the importance of memory, of smuggling words and ideas in the safe hiding place of our brains and our hearts.
