In The Heart Of The Country
In the Heart of the Country is a musical drama set at the height of the showband era in the 1960s. Sean and Beth, who both share a love for country music, meet at a dance in the Parochial hall. Their friendship soon turns into young love, despite protestations from both of their families. They decide to sing at a local carnival where the main artist of the time is coming to perform. However, the political landscape of the country is set to change with the clamour for Civil Rights spreading throughout the North and our two young country stars soon find themselves caught up in this wave of protest.
In the Heart of the Country reflects this evocative time in our recent history, with laughs, tears and a fair degree of anger, taking the audience back to a time when life was simpler, attitudes were more relaxed and people more forgiving.
The wind is blowing, freedom’s on my mind
Thoughts of walking with you by my side
I hope in my lifetime my place will always be
In the heart, heart of the country.
