“In the empty living room of a shabby apartment,
in the dark, a Beast is crying.
There is just enough light to see that he is monstrous,
and that he is clutching something precious to him.”
“Rorschach Theatre, Washington’s leading fantasists, are giving the script a loving embrace at the Atlas Performing Arts Center, where a quartet of actors are putting an engaging spin on Hardy’s swooning talk.”

Holed up in a tiny Chicago apartment, a beast and his only friend, a lamp, wait for a beauty that may never come. The downstairs neighbor has a band, and the landlady makes suspiciously delicious gingerbread. Then one day, a U-Haul arrives… In the space between now and always, GLASSHEART confronts the universal uncertainties of love, fate and free-will.
