My brother, Elliott Hayes' play Hard Hearts: A Comedy of Bad Manners is now available through Playwrights Guild of Canada. He was a brilliant playwright.
“In order to let people know what they're in for, my play Hard Hearts has been called part mystery, part comedy, part farce. All descriptions are partly right, and partly wrong. There is no genre to slot it into. Ultimately, it is a play that takes comedy seriously.” -Playwright Elliott Hayes
"Celebrating his unrivaled knack for threatening the most disturbing subjects with absurdly wicked humour is Elliott Hayes’ play “Hard Hearts”... a play that defies categorization." -- Jim Lingerfelt, Stage Door
Variety's Review of Hard Hearts called Elliott Hayes "... a Canadian Neil Simon with extra bite..."
Elliott Hayes was a prolific playwright who was killed in the prime of his life. Recently many of his unproduced plays have been found in the Stratford Festival Archives and are now being made available for the first time through the Playwrights Guild of Canada - Canadian Play Outlet. More of his plays will be released this Summer and Fall.
