The Inevitable Heartbreak


Gavin Plimsole

SharkLegs' Award Winning show, The Inevitable Heartbreak of Gavin Plimsole.


Gavin Plimsole has been hoarding his heartbeats in the shed at the bottom of his garden. That is until he learns that he might not have enough heartbeats to get to the end of his life...

In a panic Gavin invites you into his shed and asked you to share your heartbeats with him to help him answer some of his biggest questions:

How many heartbeats does he have left?         

Is he a good person?         

How do you make Marzipan??       

The SharkLegs team are collaborating with Activio Fitness to live-measure the heart rates of our audiences. These heartbeats influence the show and affect Gavin's story, the atmosphere in his shed and create the world in which he lives.
