We are on the front porch of Earl's house in a small mid western town. It is evening, and senseless death is on the rampage. That day, several upstanding citizens have been murdered by a psychopath on the loose, and Earl is determined to do something about it. Earl is a macho fool, one of life's losers, and he sees this as an opportunity to restore some of his lost status in the community. What he does not see is that the psycho may be closer to home than he could ever imagine. A success on Broadway, Heartland works both as a psychological drama and as an engrossing murder mystery.

"A writer who undeniably has the authentic touch of the playwright. . . . Strongly patterned and envisaged . . . honestly gripping psychological thriller." - New York Post
HEARTLAND was first presented at the Century Theater in New York on February 23, 1981. Directed by Art Wolff.

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

SKEET - mid-forties. Very large man. Extremely intimidating. Rarely if ever raises his voice. Doesn't have to. Beneath the surface calm is a tremendous rage. But he seldom shows it. When he does it's almost a surprise to him. He has a quick, easy smile, but the smile disappears as quickly as it comes.
EARL - forties. A very small, wiry, nervous man, slightly balding. His way of dealing with tension is to joke.
JAMES - 16. Rather shy, but with a quick temper and an ability to manipulate his father's emotions. Intelligent, imaginative.
COTTON - late fifties. Even-tempered.
