‘Heart’ beats for actress

Chalfant to star in Barker play

Kathleen Chalfant (“Angels in America”) will topline Howard Barker’s 1992 play “A Hard Heart,” the latest production from Off Broadway’s Epic Theater Ensemble.

Formerly known as Epic Theater Center, the troupe originated “No Child …,” Nilaja Sun’s solo show that went on to a yearlong commercial run Off Broadway.

Brit scribe Barker’s play follows a tactician, Riddler (Chalfant), who tries to come up with a plan for protecting a besieged city. Will Pomerantz (“Great Expectations”) directs.

Production begins previews Oct. 30 for a Nov. 11 opening at the Harold Clurman Theater on Theater Row.
