Silliness abounds in this four-hander romantic comedy written by Winnipeg’s Matthew Koroscil. Dillon and his pal Kyle are enjoying a summer day while Dillon ogles his love, Lucille, with binoculars. He summons the nerve to talk to her, only to learn the dastardly motorcycle punk Sneaky Peter has literally stolen her heart. Dillon offers her his heart — she’s got 40 minutes to live without one before she dies in the medical rules of this story — and makes a deal with the devilish Sneaky Peter to obtain the “eternal heart.”

Dillon, heartless, and Kyle, who’s just looking for a drink, go to the ends of the earth, even the “Sriracha Desert,” on their Pythonesque quest that gave the sold-out audience plenty to giggle over.

— Alan Small

 

From the Fringe program:

Lucille's heart has been stolen by the nefarious Sneaky Peter! Dillon and his best friend, Kyle, have decided to go on a quest for love to win Lucille's heart. The only problem is Lucille can only survive without her heart for 40 minutes…or until the end of a quest - whichever comes first. Can Dillon and Kyle save Lucille in time or will Sneaky Peter prove the old adage "nice guys finish last"? Spoiler - he doesn't.
