Highway of Lost Hearts Hits Griffith Regional Theatre Stage

Imagine waking up one morning and realising your heart is missing

Griffith Regional Theatre welcomes Bathurst-based production company Lingua in May with their production of Highway of Lost Hearts.

Written by Mary Anne Butler, the play stars the theatrical power house Kate Sjitha s Mot, who wakes up one morning to find her heart is missing from her chest.

She can’t breath, she has a pulse, but she feels nothing, so she sets off on a road trip to find her heart.

Theatre manager Marg Andreazza said this play, about a womah’s search for her heart, is really an allegory for a country that has lost its heart.

“Her journey, dow the Highway of Lost Hearts, takes her into the Australian outback, with red dirt and landscapes, fir and flood, mountains and murky waters, brough to life through Kate Smith’s remarkable one-woman performance and May Anne Butler’s beautiful script,” Ms Andreazza said.

“An exceptional element of this play is that there are also two live musicians on stage, interacting with the actor, and bringing music and adding life to the storyline.

“Smith and Jones are well known musicians from the NSW Central WEst and have written original music for the show.”

As part of their membership benefits, 2024 Theatre members can bring a friend for free to the show on May 29.

They are encouraged to call the Box Office to secure their tickets now.

“We are also very excited that Smith and Jones will be delivering a workshop for musicians and performers, or those that would like to be performers, when they are in Griffith on the event of 28 May,” Ms Andreazza said.

It is a great opportunity to brush up on performance skills and learn some on-stage dos and don’ts.

It is suitable for performers aged 25 years and above, and payment for the workshop includes a ticket to the show the next night.
