LOST HEARTS Adapted for the stage by Michael James Ford and Stewart Roche Starring Michael James Ford, Bairbre Ni Chaoimh and Kyle Hixon

Filmed in the magnificent setting of Roundwood House, Mountrath, Co. Laois

London, 1903. Stephen Elliot is rapidly descending into madness and opium addiction. In an attempt to arrest his decline, 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 his reclusive Uncle 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. 

‘with the wonderful setting (filmed in the gorgeous Roundwood House), interesting performances and brilliant sound design… From sun-kissed green fields to dark, dank and ominous cellars lit only by candle-light, the piece looks terrific throughout... the minimalist cast all pull double duty and rise to the challenge well’ London Horror Society
