THEATRE SERIES: Hearts Full of Blood

I really want to see this play, but I'm afraid, based on the synopsis below, that I 'know' (we probably all know) what the 'surprise' ending is.

My guess is that there has probably been an affair, an STD, and infertility due to that.

Or maybe I'm just jaded and crazy, lol.

Does anyone know this play, and know for sure what the 'surprise' ending is? If so, please message me. (I don't want to be caught off guard, or make FWH feel ambushed).
PICCOLO SPOLETO THEATRE SERIES:  HEARTS FULL OF BLOOD—(Tragicomedy, 85min) As they struggle to conceive the child they want so desperately, Jacob and Allison find an answer to this continual failure and unearth the one truth that can destroy everything upon which their perfect lives have been built. Sharp biting comedy mixed with a shocking twist you won’t be able to get out of your head. Produced by What If? Productions. (PLEASE NOTE: Parental discretion is advised due to content, language, and/or subject matter).

Reading the synopsis and given the title of the series and the use of the word "biting" (sharp biting comedy) - I think one of them is a vampire. I don't think infidelity would be that shocking, sadly.

Wow Jana, I would have never in a million years thought of that! I guess I'm showing my age, and the fact that I have never been interested in any vampire stuff. I had to stop watching True Blood because it just became too weird for me, lol.

Based on an extraordinary true story

I tried Googling it, and this makes me think that it's not about vampires. I couldn't find any spoilers though, but there is another couple who the main couple is trying to set up.

OK, I'm intrigued now, and based on my google research, I think I'm wrong. I'm just trying to figure out if it's "safe" for BS viewing. If I figure out what the secret is, I won't tell you. Just if it's safe or not.

I have a suspicion but I was wrong with my first guess (I think) so I'm going to keep it to myself. I don't think, given how all the reviews say it's so shocking and must be kept quiet so as not to spoil the play -doesn't sound like an affair to me.

I'll play the guessing game, PPGA......

Perhaps one of them was born as a boy/girl and the reason that they can't have a child is because the person was *raised* as the 'wrong' sex, kwim?

How strange that the internet is so tight-lipped about this shocking twist. Do the attendees have to sign some type of confidentiality agreement or something? Geesh. Now I'm dying to know what it is too.

OK since we are guessing - I'm thinking they are biological siblings. The original title was something like "Call of Blood" or something like that. Makes me think they are bio-related.

Wow, those are all good guesses.

I, too, can not believe we can not find a spoiler online. Maybe we are all just crappy at searching.

Here's my guess: maybe they kill all the attendees at the end, and that's why no one lives to tell!

Ah, I just had another thought...

Maybe the husband has had a vasectomy because he secretly doesn't want kids, (or the wife had her tubes tied) and she secretly doesn't really want kids, and the shocking ending is that one of them is a deceptive asshole!

That would be enough to make people cry and gasp!

In that case, I'll send some anonymous tickets over to my wife's AP

But back to Sherlocking, in one review I read the wife has had a few miscarriages, which rules out the vasectomy and tube tying. This is beginning to become an interesting mystery...and the husband "gives" the secret to the guy they are trying to set up at the dinner date...hmmmmm...

One review said it was "Based on a true story," the program cover insists, and yes, the story is about as dark as one can envision without entering Sweeney Todd territory."

Another calls the twist, which centers on the female lead "Truly, horrifically, tragically, disgustingly shocking."

Based on this, I am guessing serial killer.

I was going to suggest that maybe they somehow knew ppga was going to come back and spill the beans to us so they did something nefarious to her. But, I see she has been here today and posted at 4:41 PM, so now she is just toying with us.

Please tell us, please, please, please!

Found this.

It's difficult to say much about the play's plot without giving too much away, but this twistedly funny play mixes the pathos of Oedipal tragedy with ripped-from-the-headlines sensationalism. Imagine, if you will, what Oedipus would look like on Dr. Phil and you've got some sense of the impetus behind Hearts Full of Blood.

I don't think one is forth coming. But here's my theory. They are siblings. Inbreeding increases chance of miscarriage and also a reviewer referred to Oedipus. Additionally the original title was "call to blood". Why did they change the title? . That's shocking and taboo enough to freak people out! Any other theories?

Oedipus did not refer to siblings. I am guessing more likely long lost baby given up for adoption by very young mother.

Okay guys, settle down!

I'm still alive. Thank you all for caring, lol.

I'm sorry I haven't updated, I really did not intend to torment my fellow SIers, but I just wasn't in the mood to discuss it...I guess...because I was somewhat...disappointed.

Well, many of you guessed it! But Jana, since you guessed it first, you get the prize: a "Just Friends" date with Ryan:

Okay, here's the deal. Yes, the were biological sibs.

The play was really really good, the actors were great, everything was great, but somehow I had built this up so much in my mind, that I came out of there not even the least bit shocked, and I think this is the reason why: dead_inside got this part of it right

They are siblings. Inbreeding increases chance of miscarriage
but this info was revealed at about 2/3 of the way thru the play, so I was waiting for something even more shocking to occur at the end of the play because I thought the reviews sad that the big reveal came at the end.

So after the reveal of them being sibs, all I could think about was what was coming next, and I came up with something awful, and then when nothing happened I just sat there thinking, what? This is the end? Can't be! There must be something more!

So I told H what ending I had come up with, and he said I should be a playwright.

PPGA - thanks for the update! It would of been cooler if they were vampire siblings or something like transsexual vampire siblings . That's really less shock value then watching Rocky Horror for the first time.

So do you guys want to know what I came up with?

A little background info here:
The only other characters in the play were the wife's BFF and the H's BFF. The H's BFF was a single guy, lawyer, and he is the one, that, as a favor to the H, got into the sealed adoption records and found out that the H's biological parents were also the wife's parents.

The wife's BFF was single, and always carrying on about what a wonderful relationship her BFF and H had, and how she wished she could find wonderful H like her BFF had, and how she would probably never find a guy that wonderful. Well, being the jaded person that I am, I saw that as a red flag.

Also, the H and W were always trying to set up these two BFF's with each other, but the two BFF's never liked each other that much.

Also, the H's BFF seemed somewhat envious of the H and W's relationship.

So what I came up as the really shocking ending was this: The 2 BFF's were colluding with each other to breakup their friends relationship so the male BFF could be with the wife, and the female BFF could be with the husband. That the couple really were NOT sibs, and the lawyer friend had made up FAKE adoption papers to show the H that they were, knowing that this would break them up. And that right as the sib thing was being revealed to the wife, she found out she was pregnant, and aborted the baby (her last chance to have a child) thinking that she and her H really were sibs.

So, should I be a playwright or what?

Oooh you SHOULD be a playwrite!!!

Excuse me, but Mr. Gosling is all mine.
As good SIers, we must learn to share.

Yes Tred, I wasn't even that shocked because the H and W did not know they were sibs when they married. Now, if they had known, and got married anyway, then yes, I would have shocked and disgusted.

But H and I talked about it, and we both decided that if we were to find out today, after being together for 35 yrs, and well past childbearing years, that we were sibs, we would not divorce. Are we demented?

What would everyone else do?

Find a state to move to where it's legal?

I liked your version of the play better...it was more nefarious!

YESS - you should be a playwrite!

Good - can I have an advance copy when ur done please?

Is it pathetic or what ... that we have experienced such horrors in our lives that a married couple who are sibblings...(with miscarriage issues) is not shocking 'enough' for us?

Talk about being deadened to the world!

Your ending is fantastic, ppga. Thanks for finally ending our torture, too.

Something like this actually did happen in the small town FWH grew up in. A man that FWH went to school with met a woman from the next small town over. They started dating and fell in love and moved in together. They were in their 20's. They were finally told that they were half brother and sister by one of the parents who had an affair and that the women was the OC.

They stayed together. As far as I know they are still together, but we don't live in that town anymore and don't follow the gossip.

The plot sounds very similar to an old eighties movies with Matt Dillon called Liars Moon (I think that's the name.). Matt's character falls in love with a girl who may/may not be his half sister due to an affair. She gets pregnant before knowing this and later has an illegal abortion because if it. The movie actually two endings - one where she dies - another where she lives. In the end, they were not siblings.

I can't believe I remembered this movie - I was in love with Matt Dillon back then - that's probably why. Today - I would take Ryan Gosling in a heartbeat - I may be too old for him now though....a girl can dream!

Aesir - yes I do know that Oedipus was about a mother son thing, the main point of it is that they are blood relatives as well- it was really the changing of the play title from "call to blood" to "hearts of blood" that made me wonder if that original title was pointing to the shocking plot twist--anyway Jana figured it out- I was trying to add objective supporting evidence! We are good at that here lol

It is sad that nothing shocks SIers any more though!

LOL thanks PPGA - very nice prize! I do like your ending better! We have been moving all day and I think it is going to be an all-nighter so I am punchy but I laughed like a loon at Ryan being D4M's brother.


We're both in our 30s. One awesome 4-year-old daughter.
