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.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
