Jade Anouka’s HEART  introduces us to a woman, shaken by a broken relationship, who finds herself discovering love in the last place—and with the last person—she ever expected. With her sexuality awakened to a new truth, she battles her own and society’s expectations of what love looks like.

“A casually charismatic, effortlessly charming performer, Anouka occupies the stage with confident grace” (The New York Times) in this Audible Theater production dedicated to the misfits and “others.” Directed by Ola InceHEART  takes the audience on a relatable and life-affirming journey that challenges the “norms” society presents us with and celebrates the freedom found in following your heart.
