Act in the Public Heart — A Lawyer’s Journey
~ a one-woman show ~

One Hour, One Chair, One Woman. Described by audience members as magnificent, compelling, relevant, magical, life-changing, brilliant, extraordinary and much more, Franca Baroni’s one-woman show is coming back to the Jewelbox Theater after a successful premiere last December and acclaimed shows in the Winter and Spring 2018.

The heart is more than just a pump? Feeling at a dead-end in our world or wanting a fresh and encouraging perspective for yourself and our country no matter your affiliations? Then this show is for you.

Act in the Public Heart is a true story and personal and collective quest for justice centered around six scientific discoveries about the heart. It is a delicate mix of drama and comedy about how a lawyer grappled with identity, trauma, belonging, immigration, disintegration, freedom, and justice while discovering the greater heart of humanity, the Public Heart, a liberating silver lining for the challenges facing our communities and countries.

Be prepared to explore what has the potential to transform us and tackle some of the most complex problems of our time.

Written and performed by actress, award-winning author and immigration attorney, Franca Baroni, and co-created and directed by critically acclaimed actress and dancer Simone Bruyere Fraser.
