With Love and a Major Organ (85 Minute Digital Version) by Julia Lederer
Anabel gives her heart to a stranger she meets on the subway.
He disappears with it and her limbs begin to fall asleep. She needs to get it back.
George is on the run, but keeps getting distracted by romantic comedies and feelings he's never had before. Not all of them are his own.
Mona is online speed-dating and seeking therapy from GoogleShrink to feel more connected to the world.
Then a stranger appears on her doorstep in search of a missing heart.
Whimsical, funny, and wildly original, With Love and a Major Organ is a unique exploration of love in the age of technology. Why is it that we are ever more connected and yet we have never felt more alone? A modern day fable about what it costs to give your heart away, and what happens when you discover you actually have one.
"[A] show that stands out above the others... just about perfect... rises to a rare level of universal truth, all while making us laugh. A lot.”
- NewCity Stage, Chicago
"Lederer’s dialogue is laced with sophisticated poetry and wry insight into the isolation faced by a generation.”
- The Los Angeles Times
"A brash, poetic and fiercely original voice that's equal parts pee-your-pants funny and get-out-that-Kleenex poignant." - NOW Magazine, Toronto
