Open Heart Surgery Theatre presents the podcast pilot episode. Martha Ross and Coleen Shirin MacPherson, two theatre makers find themselves grappling with their obsession with Leonora Carrington, the English-born Mexican painter and writer whose surreal life and art has impacted many. Their obsession transforms as they chat with writer Heidi Sopinka; falling into Carrington’s paintings themselves, they witness a world that is strange, animalistic, mythological and absurd.
