    Discovery of the Heart - Creation of Adam - Michelangelo

    The Discovery of the Heart

    Physicists tell us that perhaps there are parallel universes. Is there a parallel universe of the heart, where we might find the real values that make us tick? Maybe it's not law and government that makes a Good Society, maybe it's something far deeper. Featuring former governor general and CBC Massey Lecturer Adrienne Clarkson, with mathematician and playwright John Mighton and former street kid and United Church minister-turned-politician, Cheri DiNovo. From the 2015 Stratford Festival.
