ABINGTON, Pa. — Penn State Abington invites the community to a free performance of the acclaimed show "Heart Ripped Out Twice And So Can You!" by actor, writer and director Linnea Bond on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m.

Bond describes "Heart Ripped Out Twice" as a comedy, mostly, about pain with her raw honesty driving a compelling story about illness, love and loss. This show may not be suitable for all ages.

Bond is a performance artist, actor, writer, director and teacher who produces work with intentional social momentum. With degrees in sociology, acting and devising, her work explores the apocalypse on a global, communal and individual scale. She has employed audience participation, traditional storytelling, clown, essay, audio and site specificity to probe these themes and frequently makes work through engagement with community partners to explore themes relevant to that partner.

Date: Wednesday, Feb. 28  
Time: 7:00 p.m., followed by a discussion and light reception with Linnea Bond 
Location: Sutherland Auditorium, Penn State Abington, 1600 Woodland Road, Abington, PA 19001
