Highway of Lost Hearts
04 Jun 2024 - Capitol Theatre
Presented by Quest Tamworth
A Lingua Franca production
By Mary Anne Butler
with original live music by Smith & Jones
A woman. A dog. A campervan. And 4,500km of wide open road.
Mot wakes up one morning to find that her heart is missing from her chest. She can breathe; she has a pulse— but she feels… nothing.
So, she decides to go and look for it. With her dog enlisted as co-pilot, Mot heads down the Highway of Lost Hearts: into the deepest core of the Australian outback—navigating red dirt landscapes, fire and flood, brittle dryness, vast salt lakes, age-old mountains and murky waters filled with lost souls.
“…makes one ponder matters of the heart that go beyond the world of the play… A truly exceptional production that is winsome, lyrical and at times even transcendent. This outstanding production is not to be missed.” - Suzie Gibson, artshub.com.au
An allegory for a country that’s lost its heart, Highway of Lost Hearts, by award-winning Darwin playwright Mary Anne Butler, is half gritty road journey, half magic realism and all heart. It leaves you pondering the question: when your heart goes missing, what lengths will you go to in order to find it again? A truly regional story!
