A Bomb in the Heart

Listen to my full review on CBC’s Calgary Eyeopener at




For occasional theatre goers – The non-linear nature of the show in combination with the overly poetic/mystical writing may frustrate and confuse you. Still there is no denying the talent of the performer and the incredible production design. MAYBE SEE IT

For theatre junkies – Frustration may also be your feeling as you  work your way through an overwritten script that tries so hard to be allegorical, it threatens to pull a mystical muscle. However, if you can focus on Ishan Davé’s effortless performance, Simon Mallet’s deft direction and Erin Gruber’s terrific video projections, you’ll be well-rewarded. MAYBE SEE IT

    Thanks, Jessica. This is one of the current shows that caught my attention and was on my “maybe see” list. Still on my “maybe see” list. I’ll let you know if I get there. – Ellen
