Tongue And groove theatre presents:

King of hearts

running May 22 - June 6 at Salvage Vanguard Theatre, 2803 E. Manor Road, ATX.

An original stage adaptation inspired by the French film of the same name, King of Hearts is Set during WWI, this whimsical anti-war allegory tells the story of a humble Scottish soldier, Charles Plumpick, who is sent into a supposedly evacuated French village. His mission: to locate and disarm explosives rigged by the Germans to destroy the Scottish battalion as they begin their occupation of the village. Once the lone soldier Plumpick arrives, he encounters strange inhabitants, even for the French. Unbeknownst to Plumpick, the escaped patients of a lunatic asylum have assumed the roles of the evacuated villagers. 

Ultimately, the play questions the sanity of those who wage war.
