Broken Hearts
Broken Hearts
Based on stories by Oscar Wilde. Adapted by Gretta Berghammer and Rod Caspers.

Cast: 7 to 11 actors. Broken Hearts is a stage adaptation of three of Oscar Wilde's most poignant and timeless fairy tales. While all three stories possess a magical beauty, they also contain biting social satire and commentary about the wrongs of nineteenth century society Wilde hoped to expose. The lessons they teach are just as important to us today. In The Birthday of the Infanta, a princess' cruel inhumanity breaks the heart of a crippled "Fantastic" brought to entertain her; The Devoted Friend reveals some of the unkinder uses of friendship; and The Happy Prince discovers new-found joy and hope as he relieves poverty and despair around him. By the play's end, the audience is left to question the choices the characters make and to ponder where the justice and reward is in the sacrifices they make throughout the play.
