Our Carnal Hearts
Rachel Mars

No Safety Net
Performance
 

With a raucous chorus of original surround-sound live music, Rachel Mars and four belting female singers come at you with a hilarious dark show about the hiding workings of one of our uglier emotions…envy.

A gleeful, thrilling, and murky rummage through our darkest instincts, Our Carnal Hearts is part capitalist satire and part emotional vivisection — an exploration of envy across politics, status, career, sex, and family. It’s a place to whoop at our own fragility and delight against our better nature. Our Carnal Hearts proves that the spirit of envy runs through our hearts — and we wouldn’t want it any other way. With music composed by Louise Mothersole, it is “wickedly funny…soothing and sharp-edged at the same time.” (The Stage)
