The Tin Woman is the story of a woman who receives a heart transplant and her eventual meeting the family of the donor.
Instead of relishing life after her heart transplant, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance. Meanwhile, Alice and Hank mourn the loss of their son, Jack, whose heart was used to save Joy. At a friend’s urging, Joy tracks down Jack’s family to find closure. But are Alice, Hank, and their daughter Sammy ready to accept Jack’s death? Based on a true story, The Tin Woman uses humor and pathos to explore loss, family, and what it means to be given new life.
Centre Stage is partnering with their show sponsor, Donate Life SC, to also promote awareness of organ donation throughout the run of the show. The cast has met with organ donation recipients to gain knowledge about the process and the emotional toll it takes on the organ recipient and the families of the organ donors. The cast of The Tin Woman and representatives from Donate Life SC will host post- show talkbacks after the performances on June 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, and 30. Audience members are encouraged to stay after and discuss the performance as well as learn about organ donation.
