DOWN ALONG THE COVE

 JUNE 29 & 30,  JULY 6 &  7 @ 7:30PM
JULY 1 @ 3:00PM

 After three readings and several years of creative development, Heartwood presents an original work, Down Along the Cove.  This full length play is set in Midcoast Maine (late 1980s to early 2000s).  Fifteen vignettes focus on key moments in the lives of Cy, Margaret, Emma, Clifton, Roger, Elaine, and Dewey, residents of a fictitious coastal town.

Seven actors create nearly 20 characters whose human stories unfold within the midcoast landscape. Braley calls Down Along the Cove, “An ode to our small towns, a look at grace in small moments, a call to recollect and cherish.” The play works through and beyond stereotypes, allowing audiences, for an evening, to rest their gaze and reflect on these few representational lives.

Aprofessional ensemble will work for three weeks in April to workshop and stage the play, then return for a full production in June/July.

THE SECRET GARDEN

JULY 20 & 21, 25 thru 28 @ 7:30PM
JULY 22 @ 3:00PM 

 Heartwood welcomes a dynamic cast to the Poe Theater for this unique ensemble musical filled with visions, dreams, memory, incredible music, and rich characters to summon up English gardens, dark manors and hope.  With a cast of local favorites, some veterans of 2017's Into the Woods, and a host of spectacular new faces, Secret Garden will satisfy audience members of all ages.

Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate's many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the "Dreamers", spirits from Mary's past who guide her through her new life with a compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.
