The performance follows a young woman's discovery that she is Asexual and the implications it has on her friendships, family and dating life. Exploring themes of coming out and growing up queer, there are also songs about discovery such as ‘Cake’ and ‘Aro or Romantic,’ along with comedy numbers such as ‘Online Dating.’
"Catchy, well-written... beautifully performed" — Weekend Notes
Heteronormativity has the potential to impact harmfully on the lives and mental wellbeing of people who identify as queer or asexual. We hope this performance contributes to raising awareness and increasing visibility of this aspect of the LGBTIQIA+ umbrella.
Ace of Hearts was first produced as part of PRONTO by MUST and also featured in the MUST Cabaret Festival in 2018. The musical premiered as part of the Midsumma Festival in 2019.
