THE SHOW MUST GO ON… EVEN IN A LOCKDOWN
We are so disappointed not to be setting off on a rollicking romp round the UK. We’re sure you’re disappointed not to be seeing us as well. That’s why we’ve set up Heartbreak at Home, where we will be sharing full length videos of productions past. These vids are free to watch so that as many people as possible can enjoy them. Why not get into the true Heartbreak spirit and improvise an at-home picnic? We’d love to see photos of your “outdoor to indoor theatre experience”, so be sure to post them to social media using the hashtag #heartbreakathome.
We know these are difficult times, but if you are able to make a small donation to our survival fund we’d be hugely grateful, as we will find it quite challenging to keep afloat until 2021.
We’ll be changing the videos every two weeks, so make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list to be notified when a new production is available.
A controversial yet tender story of sexual politics, The Taming of the Shrew focuses on the electric battle between Petruchio and Kate, who engage in the most unconventional courtship in English literature. Brought to life by Heartbreak’s hallmark ingredients of live music, humour, and audience interaction, this adaptation of an unlikely love story explores how two people come to know each other and understand what magic is needed to create the “perfect” marriage. Heartbreak provides the perfect Shakespearean experience for the uninitiated, the unconvinced, and the unwavering followers of the Bard. So spread your picnic out on your sitting room floor, and see who gets the best of it in this timeless battle of the sexes. We’d love to see photos of your “outdoor to indoor theatre experience”, so be sure to post them to social media using the hashtag #heartbreakathome.
You can always search for us on your smart TV YouTube app, under Heartbreak Productions. There are other Heartbreak Productions videos (not all produced by us) but if you scroll through the list you will come to the show you want to see. The Taming of the Shrew will only be available for 2 weeks before we switch to something else, so make sure you don’t miss out!
