The story of a woman who receives a heart transplant and her eventual meeting with the family of the donor. Instead of relishing life after her heart transplant, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance.

Role # 1 - Joy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
A freelance graphic artist. At the outset of the play Joy has received a life-saving heart transplant but is conflicted about what to do with her new life. She has a reticence to touch or be touched. Her loss of connection with her family, her boyfriend, her barbed sense of humour are indicative of someone dealing with the early onset of depression. Still she has the spark of something trying to break out and survive and connect in her new life.

Role # 2 - Jack Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
An accountant with aspirations of being a photographer. Jack died in a car accident before the play begins and donated his heart to Joy. Jack appears throughout the show watching the events unfold, as well interactions during flash-back. Jack is single, fashionably hipster-ish and a disappointment to his father Hank who wanted Jack to follow his footsteps of the family business. A prominent role, Jack remains on stage for most of the play. Requires a male with strong stage presence, incredible patience and subtle variations. His contribution to the show should be immense even though he doesn’t often speak.

Role # 5 - Sammy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Sammy is Jack’s sister and daughter of Alice and Hank. A pre-school teacher she is somewhat ‘new agey’. She really wants to help all the time, she’s writes a blog that over-shares her life and lets emotions get the better of her. A really fun role for the right misfit.

Role # 7 - Darla Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
