Heart is a Wasteland

Brisbane Festival and Queensland Performing Arts Centre present

Heart is a Wasteland

15 - 18 Sept

Storytelling and live music combine in a cross-country, whisky-fuelled love story.

Raye, a struggling country music star in the making, plays pub to pub along Australia’s vast desert highways, flogging demo CDs in the hope of returning home to her son, Elvis. But when she meets Dan, another broken wanderer, a love affair unfurls over their four-day drive home to Alice Springs.

ILBIJERRI Theatre Company’s restaging of John Harvey’s Heart is a Wasteland has been reimagined by Artistic Director Rachael Maza.

Recognising everyone’s individual right to love, this production cuts to the country’s heart.
