About the Show Less...

Particularly In The Heartland is a fantastical, muddy and musical journey into the heart of an America where parents vanish, aliens grow in cornfields, New Yorkers drop from the sky and dead presidents stop by for Christmas dinner. Read More >

Set in Kansas, the geological centre of the United States of America, the three Springer children are left alone after a tornado hits their farm. One by one, three visitors arrive bringing magic and madness into the household. A new family forms and shatters as a battle for the soul of America is waged in mud, fossils, eggs and flour, music and light. Drawn from Mid-West mythologies ranging from The Wizard of Oz and Intelligent Design to the liberal obsession with Bobby Kennedy’s assassination, Particularly In The Heartland combines a gently absurdist kitchen sink realism with dreamy magical sequences. Both critique and love song, this is a play about losing sight of America and trying to fall back in love with it.
