The Heart as it Lived
By Mansel Robinson
Producer: Nick Butler
Director: Barb Jones
Stage Manager: Lindsay Smith
Annie is a cranky, puritanical spinster who has never questioned the status quo – until the night her solitude is invaded by a charming young hustler named Zak who breaks into her house. When Annie discovers that Zak is the grandson of her estranged sister, she is forced to confront the events surrounding the Regina Riot of 1935 and face the consequences of decisions she made more than sixty years ago.
The Heart as it Lived is about family and politics in the corporate 90's and the dirty 30's.
Mansel’s plays are like the very land itself, which is deceptively flat:
subtle and gentle until they slam you hard with the truth.
Sort of like facing down the bitter north winds of February while
crossing South Saskatchewan.
