A HARD HEART by Howard Barker
directed by Will Pomerantz
October 30 – December 9, 2007: New York Premiere
A Hard Heart is a prophetic and electrifying exploration of the ways we protect our political and human borders when feeling under siege. This chilling tale about sacrifice and seduction in the face of war was written in 1991 by acclaimed British playwright, Howard Barker (Scenes from an Execution, The Castle), long before 9/11, the Patriot Act, the new Pope, and the current immigration debate.
