London, 1903, and Stephen Elliot is rapidly descending into madness and opium addiction.

In an attempt to arrest his decline, leading psychiatrist Doctor Olsen utilises hypnosis to delve deep into the young man's suppressed memories. What is revealed is a terrifying episode from Stephen's childhood, when, as a traumatised orphan, he was sent to live with a reclusive distant relative at the remote Aswarby Hall.
There he experiences increasingly disturbing incidents and is plagued by two spectral children, whose actions drive the story to its blood-curdling conclusion.
Lost Hearts is one of the darkest tales from M.R. James (1862 -1936), who is widely regarded as one of the foremost writers of supernatural fiction. This new adaptation for Bewley's Cafe Theatre promises a chilling hour of horror for the Halloween season.

LOST HEARTS was originally streamed in 2021, during lockdown as a filmed performance in the magnificent setting of Roundwood House, Mountrath, Co. Laois. It now returns as a live theatre piece to the Bewley's stage.

'Ford and Roche's interpretation of Lost Hearts hits all the right beats... The minimalist cast all pull double duty and rise to the challenge well... The music is wonderfully suited to the piece... Lost Hearts is a favourite of mine, and after viewing The Curious Ensemble's piece it may become a favourite of yours too' London Horror Society

Music arranged and performed by Philip Dodd and Donal Wallace
