Raye is a struggling country music star in the making. Riding her luck, she’s playing pub to pub along Australia’s vast desert highways, flogging demo CDs for ten bucks a piece until she can go home to Alice and look her son Elvis in the eye. Then Raye’s life becomes entwined with that of another wanderer. She meets Dan after a gig, and a love affair unfurls over the four-day drive north from Roxby Downs, South Australia to Alice Springs.Heart is a Wasteland sees John and Margaret Harvey combine theatre, film and live music in this intimate portrait of two road-weary travellers that cuts
to the country’s heart. Ursula Yovich (Australia, The Sapphires stage production) and Aaron Pedersen (Water Rats, Mystery Road, Goldstone) come together to portray two achingly beautiful characters, playing out a whiskey-fuelled battle of egos, desires and hidden scars. Backed by the sounds of a lonesome guitar, the trip becomes
a pressure cooker for two strangers to expose, hide, and risk themselves.From Brown Cab Productions, Heart is a Wasteland is a luminous journey towards the recognition of everyone’s worthiness of, and right to, love.
