Paul Murphy’s new ‘existential comedy for the age of anxiety’ Dirty Hearts, has netted an Offies nomination and a slew of rave reviews at London’s Old Red Lion Theatre, where its limited season must end on 30 April 2022. We’ve rounded up review highlights below. Time to get booking!
Tell the truth. Be a good person. Do the right thing. If only it was so easy…
When wealth manager Ben asks art appraiser Julienne to authenticate a painting stored in the Geneva Freeport, he sets off a chain of events that forces four friends to re-examine their relationships.
Best friends Simon and Laura know all about ethical duty. Laura has the Hippocratic Oath to keep things clear, and Simon has a career in conflict resolution. But when put to the test, all four are forced to question who they really are.
Paul Murphy’s new play shows the difficulty of doing the right thing when faced with what Simone De Beauvoir calls the ‘ambiguity of existence’. Rupert Hands directs Isabel Della-Porta, John MacCormick, Allegra Marland and Pierro Niel-Mee in Pine Street Theatre’s premiere production.
