Introduction

Hole in the heart 'Hole in the heart is a well thought out play, written and directed by George Eugeniou. It was not confusing to me at all except at times I found it hard to distinguish between dream world and reality, but if you kept in tune with the play you could really tell what it was about. The story is one filled with anger, jealousy and death In my opinion there isn't one main character as there is a lot going on with each character but if you had to choose, then at first it's Tina and towards the end it becomes Rosie.' It starts off in a snowy winter, with a young boy freezing to death, loosing his life in a race he was forced to run in, despite warning everyone of his bad heart condition (The hole in his heart). ...read more.

Middle

have just been told by Tina's social worker, (Miss Fortey) that Tina's brother has died and they now face the hardship of telling Tina. After telling Tina, she storms out of the room crying leaving the foster mum saying that she is NOT to go to the funeral. Moments later the twins come running in with news that Tina has run away. I like the fact that it was more of a modern day play as it dealt with real issues. 'At this point in the play I started to get into the story an wanted to find out what happened to Tina. For an opening of a play, quite a lot has happened and has been put together nicely to fit in with the rest of the play. ...read more.

Conclusion

After the baby is born and Tina gets a flat she has dreams of going to India and seeing her friend again. Alex again gives Tina a good talk on how to keep Rosie as her guardian calls. After Rosie has an accident the father shows up and wants to be a part of Rosie's life and help keep her with Tina but Tina says no she doesn't need his help. (At this point you really feel bad for Rosie because she could be taken away from Tina through Tina's own arrogance and pride.) I will let YOU read the rest and be your own judge but in my opinion I would recommend this play to anyone who is interested in watching a good show. It's emotional and is an excellent play and I really wouldn't mind reading it again! ...read more.
