Summary

Heart, a truly poetic new play, explores the maxim that 'Every new story begins as another one ends'.

Written and performed by London-based actor and poet Jade Anouka (His Dark Materials), Heart introduces us to a woman who finds herself married and divorced at age 28. As she begins the process of piecing her life together, she confronts the insecurities and self-imposed boundaries that have always held her back. In the process, she discovers love in the last place—and with the last person—she expected. Directed by Ola Ince, this world premiere production—dedicated to the misfits and 'others'—takes the listeners on a powerful and relatable journey, one that demonstrates that remarkable things can happen when we follow our instincts and boldly take a chance.

Content warning: Listener discretion is advised.

Produced in association with Kate Pakenham Productions. Original music composed and performed by Renell Shaw. 

Additional original music and sound design by Fitz Patton.

Portions of this audio drama contain mature language and themes.

Enthralling Surprising

This has by far been the best performed Audiobook I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I would have given it a 10 out of 5! Ms Anouka wasn't just narrating a story she was a one woman dramatic powerhouse ensemble. The vocal range was phenomenal from the conspiratorial giggly whisper to her firey anger.

The story is rich. It takes us through one woman's journey to finding love. It is deeply introspective. The main character goes through a period of maturing and painful self discovery. It deconstructs and unwinds our social and religious programming and exposes its divisiveness. I'm grateful to the author for curing my curiosity. Until now I had not understood people who live their whole lives as heterosexual then "suddenly become gay". She broaches this prickly pear with sensitivity, wit and raw honesty. I genuinely feel I understand now.

I am only sad that it's has taken me till 2023 to discover the gem 💎 that is Jade Anouka. I will definitely be looking out for more of her work!
