Colette Eaton and Naomi Todd star as Harriet and Molly, two heartbroken women who jump between the pages of the same bonk-busting paperback – and play all the parts between them. Innocent maidens and haughty aristocrats ardently pursue each other through a tempestuous, gothic landscape, replete with murder, elopement and heaving bosoms a-plenty in Lavery’s tongue-in-cheek whirlwind parody.
HER ACHING HEART features brand-new, original music by Ian Brandon. The production is directed by Hope artistic director Matthew Parker and designed by Rachael Ryan, with lighting by Tom Kitney and sound by Paul Freeman. In a unique partnership for the Hope, the musical is co-produced by LWL Entertainment Ltd, whose recent West End credits include Sid, Savage and The Tailor-Made Man: A New Musical.
