Heart-warming theatre at Roscommon Arts Centre

roscommon arts centre

A man who’s recently had a heart transplant thinks that his new heart is talking to him. Is he insane, suffering side-effects from the medication or is it possible? Could this really be happening

“Have A Heart” is a wonderfully dynamic and visually engaging piece of theatre about love and obsession and it’s on in Roscommon Arts Centre on Thursday 17th November at 8pm. It’s written by and stars Seamus Moran, who has possibly been in every living room or kitchen in the country… not as himself but as beleaguered Bistro owner Mike Gleeson in RTE’s Fair City. For 12 years he suffered the wrath of a string of strong women from Helen through Ava, Yvonne, Geraldine and back to Yvonne, before finally finding a way out, through the restaurant’s faulty fuse box. Have A Heart is Seamus’s second one-man play but the first one he’s written and it’s a treat!

When his new heart persuades him to embark on a major quest, his life is turned inside out; his world turned upside down. His beliefs, assumptions and view of himself are questioned, tested and challenged.

“Have A Heart” is a head versus heart type of show… DJ is the head, the brains, the one with experience and memories; Ray is the heart, erratic and impulsive. He is devoid of memory and experience but has intense sense memories around touch, smell and sound. Working independently, they flounder and make faltering progress. But working together and with the help of some ‘friends’ they meet along the way they find the answers they’re seeking. But will these answers please them both? Structured like a detective story, Have A Heart will keep audiences guessing and fully engaged throughout.
