The Astonished Heart

The cast of “The Astonished Heart” – L-R Leonora Vail (KALYN BOMBACK), Christian Faber (MITCH KROHN), and Barbara (NANCY SLATER)

A gripping drama will open the seventh season for the Merlyn Productions Theatre Company for CowardFest 2015.

“The Astonished Heart” by Noel Coward runs February 11-15 as part of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre’s Master Playwright Festival.

This singular play from the famous “Tonight at 8:30” series is the only Noe?l Coward tragedy being staged in the comedy-dominated line-up of CowardFest 2015!

Synopsis: Four flashbacks unravel the love triangle between doctor, wife, and mistress – a woman who set out to capture her best friend’s husband, and was herself ensnared. Returning to the present, we witness the final, shocking conclusion.

The all-local cast is made up of Winnipeg theatre actor/director/instructor Mitch Krohn as Christian Faber; former Ontario actress and current 92 CITI FM announcer Nancy Slater making her Winnipeg stage debut as Barbara, his wife; and Winnipeg actress/lawyer Kalyn Bomback as Leonora Vail.

Showtimes are Wednesday, February 11 to Friday, February 13 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, February 14 and Sunday, February 15 at 2 p.m. at the Forrest Nickerson Theatre, 285 Pembina Highway.
