Rent for 48-hours here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/bleedingheartsbyopal

ONLY AVAILABLE September 10, 11, 12, 13


The show will be available for digital rental starting September 10 at 10:00 AM EST. Patrons have 48 hours to watch their rental from the time they make their purchase.

“BLEEDING HEARTS” is a dark comedy intended for a mature audience. It is a breakneck, pitch black farce about the disappearing middle class and how people forget to put themselves in each other’s shoes.

Directed by Daniel Vogt; starring Catherine Richardson, Matthew Melton, McKenna Kline, Tristan Berg, and Dylan Eller; prop design by Tiffany Eller; and sound design by Dylan Eller.


**CONTENT: explicit language, blood, sexual themes, sexual assault**


To accommodate public health measures, each actor filmed their own scenes at home while Vogt directed them in video conferences.

This will be the first Opal production to reach audiences outside the Treasure Valley. The company produced the world premiere reading of “Bleeding Hearts” at White Dog Brewing in April 2019. The upcoming digital release will be the first production of Yockey’s script since the premiere reading.

All Patreon members of $3/mo or more will receive a complementary rental code to our first Digital Adaptation in September, along with continued access to the Production Blog. The next Blog will be live Thursday, 7/30 with new details and materials about the adaptation. 

Opal Theatre Company has not done this before. Nor have we ever experienced a digital adaptation of a script quite in the way that we want to produce one. That’s why we will be closing Season II and positioning Season III with a new format in mind.


We’re shaking in our sandals with excitement over what we’re making for you, and in a way that does not ask performers or attendees to put their health at risk. Please support us by leaving a comment, following our Spotify profile, signing up for Patreon, or by sharing our profile!
