Searching for David\'s Heart
Searching for David's Heart
By Cherie Bennett. Adapted from her book Searching for David's Heart.

Cast: 6m., 4w. (Expandable to 4 more roles, either gender.) Adapted by Ms. Bennett from her best-selling novel, this multiple award winner evokes laughter and tears. Middle-schooler Darcy has a tough home life. Money is tight and her parents argue constantly. Her sole salvation is her older brother, David, who adores her, too. But when David gets his first girlfriend, he is blinded by love and stops paying attention to Darcy. They have a huge fight and Darcy flees. When David follows her to apologize, he is killed in a terrible accident. Following his wishes, David's heart is transplanted. Guilt-ridden Darcy comes to believe that if she can find her brother's heart, she can in some way find her brother. And so the search for David's heart begins. On an epic quest with her best friend Sam (a junior magician and would-be Harry Houdini), not only does Darcy find David's heart, she finds her own. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 75 minutes.
