Passion. Riding Crops. Nuns.

Harriet and Molly just happen to be reading the same pulpy romance novel - Her Aching Heart. Transported by their imaginations into the Victorian world of the trashy tale, they embody the willful aristocrat, haughty Harriet Hellstone and the sweetly pure country maiden Molly Penhallow. A bodice-ripping affair ensues, filled with imaginatively absurd characters, swept up by passion and romance of historic proportions. With two actresses portraying every character - including the men who long for them - Bryony Lavery has crafted a satirical romantic potboiler, complete with songs and miracles, spoofing gender clichés and stereotypes with hysterical results. Her Aching Heart will be the Boston directorial debut of Lee Mikeska Gardner and the first production in her inaugural season as Artistic Director of The Nora Theatre Company.
