Julia Lederer & Robin Archer in With Love and a Major Organ

After a hit run at the 2012 Toronto Fringe Festival, Julia Lederer's With Love and a Major Organ, a funny and thoughtful story about a woman who gives her heart (literally) to a stranger on the subway, returns to the stage this month as part of the Next Stage Theatre Festival.

Directed by Andrew Lamb, the play features Lederer as Anabel, a poetic, lovesick TTC rider who slips romantic tapes into the pocket of the oblivious George (Robin Archer), an unfeeling man closely guarded by his over-protective, love-challenged mother Mona (Martha Ross). George is incapable of returning Anabel's feelings—that is until he steals her heart and places it in his own chest. Meanwhile, Anabel's limbs begin to fall asleep and she sets out to find her missing organ.

Chock-full of timely social media references, and commentary about our high-speed (dating) society, Lederer's over-the-top script is fun, relatable and at the same time completely absurd. At 65 minutes, this is one fast-paced love train you don't want to miss.

With Love and a Major Organ runs until January 13 at the Factory Studio Theatre. Visit for showtimes and to buy tickets.
