Heartbreak is a powerful, new Irish short from writer Emmet Kirwan and director Dave Tynan.

HEARTBREAK, THE LATEST offering from actor and writer Emmet Kirwan and director Dave Tynan, is a spoken word film originally commissioned by the Irish theatre company ThisisPopBaby.

On his decision to make the piece, Tynan said he was “blown away” by Kirwan when he performed it at the Fringe Festival last year.

“Everyone in that tent felt the power of it and it’s been a privilege to turn it into a film and bring it to a wider audience.”

Here it is, in full:

Heartbreak stars Kirwan, Jordanne Jones (Rebellion, I Used to Live Here) and Deirdre Molloy (Adam and Paul, Happy Ever Afters)
