Outcry Theatre will present Hearts Like Fists, a superhero noir comedy by Adam Szymkowicz, at the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park on March 19-21 and March 26-March 29.
This will be Outcry Theatre’s first production since producing Lucas Hnath’s Isaac’s Eye this past January, which critic Christopher Soden called a “sublime, chilling, phenomenal drama.” Previous productions include Carlos Murillo’s dark play or stories for boys (winner Best of Loop at Out of the Loop) and Itamar Moses’s The Four of Us in 2012, and Sarah Hammond’s Circus Tracks in 2013.
In Hearts Like Fists, the emotionally and physically scarred Doctor X is terrorizing the city, murdering sleeping lovers with a heart-stopping poison. Will the female-vigilante Crimefighters be able to stop him? And will their newest member Lisa survive the challenges of a superhero’s double-life? Can heartbroken doctor Peter finally build an artificial heart to replace his own and save the lovers of the city? Will Peter and Lisa fall in love? And worse yet, what will happen if they do?
Author Adam Szymkowicz’s plays have been produced in Canada, England, The Netherlands, Germany, Lithuania and all over the United States, including in Dallas with Nerve, which was developed with Kitchen Dog Theatre.
Hearts Like Fists will be directed by Artistic Director Becca Johnson-Spinos and will feature costume design by Amanda Capshaw, lighting design by Skyy Pamilton, and sound and projections designed by Managing Director Jason Johnson-Spinos. Auditions for Hearts Like Fists will take place in January, exact date TBA.
