    About the play: A heart ready to be transplanted, two widows, and the donor as adulterer and/or embezzler and what should have been routine becomes anything but ordinary. As the doctor says, “Time’s a-wasting!” This short play has strong characters, good action and conflict while it’s fun to perform–just a nice balanced piece that actors and audiences will enjoy.

    I directed Eric Weil’s play, Heart to Heart and found it to be a fun, well written, and fast paced play. The actors easily portrayed the characters and drew the audience into the story.Linda Fetsko Depo, Director

    It’s a special time – one woman’s husband donating his heart to keep another woman’s husband alive. But when the two women meet, their conversation soon reveals neither husband was what he seemed. The women begin to question, what is a heart, what does it contain, and whose heart are you willing to accept to keep your spouse alive? –Richard Krawiec

    On the surface, this play is about an explanted heart on its way to the operating room to be placed into the chest of a recipient. This satirical play turns this scenario upside down, choosing to address the character (or lack thereof) of the recipient and the donor, both equally despicable, and their entertaining wives, who have much in common as they have both been cheated on. The language in the play is spare and to the point. The plot is novel in that the very serious subject matter of organ donation becomes humorous. It is downright funny. A very entertaining play indeed. –Candace Moose
