About The Show
A romantic comedy about five couples in Ireland over the course of 5 decades and the effects of music on their relationships. Heart Shaped Vinyl plays from the arrival of the Beatles in 1962 to the digital revolution in 2006 and everything else in between. As it reminds us of the different things like people, places, kisses and heartbreak, the play represents a theatrical mixed tape of all the songs that triggered those memories.
