The Inevitable Heartbreak of Gavin Plimsole


If you had a finite number of heartbeats, how would you make each beat count?

Gavin feels a flutter in his heart. Is it heartburn? Is it that girl across the room? Or is it a malformation of his heart – a sticky, red time bomb? Gavin is given a life-changing diagnosis. Hiding in his shed, he assesses his entire life. What has he done with those beats? Which has he thrown away? And how many did he lose when she broke his heart?

Combining comedy with a moving, whimsical story, this unique new show is influenced every night by the collective heartbeats of the audience.

THE INEVITABLE HEARTBREAK OF GAVIN PLIMSOLE by Sharklegs Theatre Company: Winner of the 2016 Les Enfants Terribles Edinburgh Award
