This one is for the young hearts, the old hearts, and the broken hearts.

Join Karin McCracken as a woman navigating heartbreak and Simon Leary as all the ex-loves in a show studded with lo-fi covers of classic breakup songs, bad tinder dates and attempted fresh starts.

In an exhilarating new performance that brings together vulnerable memoir, famous novels and scientific text, a holistic picture of heartbreak’s impact on our bodies and minds is hilariously and poignantly shared.

Heartbreak Hotel is a new work from creative partnership Eleanor Bishop and Karin McCracken, winners of the 2022 Bruce Mason Award. Enjoy a generous, funny and reflective work that explores the benefits of letting ourselves truly feel something: the good, the bad and the heartbreaking.

You’ll want to cry. You’ll want to laugh. Welcome to the Heartbreak Hotel.

“…this show is brilliant, and pitch perfect.” – Theatreview (on ‘Yes, Yes, Yes’)
