Set in Melbourne, Richard Beynon’s 1957 drama tells the story of an Italian migrant family creating a new life in working class Collingwood and the fallout from a violent attack on one of its members.
Directed by Kim Hardwick (Sport for Jove’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), The Shifting Heart stars Tony Poli, Dina Panozzo, David Soncin, Ariadne Sgouros, Lucas Linehan, Di Smith and Laurence Coy.
“When I first read the play I was struck by its currency,” Hardwick says. “The names may be different but the struggles are still desperately real. Simply put, the story is a tragedy from our past that is still occurring today”.
