A Heart Divided
A Heart Divided
"Once in a while, a production comes along that powerfully uses the unique tools live theatre has to tell an important story and to help us understand something in a new way. The South Carolina premiere of A Heart Divided,...is such a production." —The State
By Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld. Adapted from their novel.

Cast: 2m., 4w. (May be expanded to 5m., 10w., 17 either gender.) The Confederate flag. A historical icon or a racist symbol? This thought-provoking and gripping play sheds new light on a controversy that continues to divide our national heart. When Kate's liberal-minded family moves from New York City's suburbs to a small town outside of Nashville, Kate is convinced her life is over. Redford, Tennessee, is as Southern as it gets—the local diner serves grits and sweet tea, country music rules the airwaves and the Confederate battle flag waves proudly over the courthouse square. Then she meets the handsome and talented Jackson Redford III, scion of the town and embodiment of everything Dixie. Jack shows her the beauty of his Southern roots and Kate begins to appreciate her new home. But a petition to replace the school's Confederate flag insignia gains Kate's support, and soon Kate and Jack—and their families—find themselves pitted against one another in a bitter controversy: not just about the flag, but about what it means to be an American. Commissioned by the Youth Theatre at the U (of Utah). Flexible staging. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
