In By Heart, Portuguese playwright and actor Tiago Rodrigues teaches a Shakespearean sonnet to 10 people from the audience. While they commit the verse to memory, Rodrigues blends in stories of his grandmother, anecdotes from writers of note, and characters from world literature. As the piece unfolds, the mystery that binds these tales together is revealed. By Heart is about the importance of memory, of smuggling words and ideas in the safe hiding place of our brains and our hearts.

So deep, so intelligent and so magnificent that we come out of it profoundly moved
