THE HOUSE OF MIRRORS & HEARTS
Music & Lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer
Book by Eamonn O’Dwyer & Rob Gilbert
“Keeping secrets is a kind of art…”
When Anna’s husband is killed in a tragic accident at their home, her family’s life is changed forever. Seven years pass, and, torn apart by grief, Anna has drunk herself numb. Her daughters, Lily and Laura, exist in a world of secrets and lies. They spend their days in bitter silence and suspicion until Nathan, a new lodger studying the works of a forgotten poet, forces them to confront their past. Tensions within the family build, threatening to shatter this already broken household once and for all.
A timeless, atmospheric and intoxicating musical, The House of Mirrors and Hearts is a contemporary British story about a dysfunctional family haunted by their past.
Popular songs from the show include “Something For the Pain” which has been performed live by Laura Pitt-Pulford (see video below) and recorded by Helen Hobson and “Look At Me” which has been recorded by Lauren Samuels.
