The Heart of Things

The Heart of Things

5 (1) · Fringe Theatre


Over a weekend in May 2010, in the aftermath of the last general election, the political parties are wrangling over who will form the coalition government.

Meanwhile, in a village near the Norfolk coast, a disillusioned English teacher and parttime election volunteer comes home for a rare visit and tries to put his life in order. However, the politics of family life can be every bit as vindictive and unpredictable as the Whitehall variety, and alliances can be made or broken without warning.

The Heart of Things explores the themes of family, ambition, love and loyalty. And birthdays. It examines the conundrum that exists in sexual identity and the minor disturbances that have far-reaching effects in people's private lives.
