Hope Throws Her Heart Away

Hope Throws Her Heart Away
By Susan Goodell

November 27 – December 20, 2015

Hope Throws Her Heart Away is a comedy/drama about a woman who has gone adrift trying to be all things to all people – pleasing everyone but herself. It’s the journey of growing up after growing up and finding a path by getting lost. In tune with Hope’s conflicted personality, this is a one-woman show – performed by three actresses.


Artistic Vision: I see human behavior as often absurd, so experience my quirky comedy as stringent realism. I find drama in small everyday actions, heroism in everyday people and a treasure of humor in the stumbling of everyday speech.
