Heart productions


HEART is a one man show written and performed by myself, Reece Lewis. This is a passion project that is essentially a love letter to all gay men . A story where gay men can see a little piece of themselves within the words and stories and where straight viewers can understand the intimacies of being gay in 2024. The story follows a 24 year old gay man as he struggles to navigate the world of parties, hookups and Grindr. HEART displays all of the best and worst parts about being gay. He wants to be loved deeply and passionately, loves his friends, family and the thought of finding that special someone. But it’s not that simple is it. Not when the world is constantly throwing shit at you.


I decided to write heart after playing ‘Sam’ in NSFW by Lucy Kirkwood at The White Bear Theatre. It was the first run of a play I’ve ever done and I left energised and ready to do more, make more, create and never stop. So I decided to write a show that came from my heart. Something that I would be proud to share with the world. Something that will make people laugh, smile, cry, shout. I wanted to write something that I could connect to very deeply and in turn so would my audience. So every day at 5pm on my way to work and at 5am on my back back home I’d force my eyes open, get my phone out and write. Some of it was great. Some wasn’t so great. But I ended up with a story that I think deserves to live in history. That every person should see. Gay or not. Because HEART is not wholy a gay story. It’s a human story. About love and family and heart ache. It just happens to be told through the eyes of a queer man. It is a beautiful story.


I think this story has the potential to become something bigger than it already is. The feedback and response has been extraordinary, so we want to share this story with many more people so that they can join us on this beautiful journey. With all the laughs, cries and joy it brings.
