Minola Theatre proudly presents the acclaimed Highway of Lost Hearts by Mary Anne Butler as part of Brisbane’s 2019 Anywhere Festival.
This intimate one-woman play tells the story of Mot, who drives 4,500kms through the outback with only her dog by her side, searching for the heart that seems to have disappeared from her chest.
Travelling through the broken-hearted landscape of central Australia, Mot meets a suite of characters both cruel and kind, all in search of their own missing pieces. A moving portrait of grief, human frailty and the power of resilience, Highway of Lost Hearts is a unique and powerful night of theatre.
Highway of Lost Hearts is the debut production for Minola Theatre, the brainchild of Brisbane creatives Kat Dekker and Bianca Butler Reynolds. Dekker, who directs this production, and Butler Reynolds, its sole performer, previously collaborated to produce the highly successful independent season of Love you hate you drive you wild at Metro Arts, Brisbane in July 2017.
The current production plays for five performances only: May 9, 10, 16, 17 and 18, all at 7:30pm.
Highway of Lost Hearts will be performed in the memorable outdoor amphitheatre space at Council’s newly developed Seven Hills Hub. The Hub is located at 28 Tallowwood Street, Seven Hills, with access via Clearview Terrace. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or camping chair and wear weather-appropriate clothing.
