★★★★★ "A truly exceptional production that is winsome, lyrical and at times even transcendent. This outstanding production is not to be missed." ArtsHub

A woman. A dog. A campervan. And 4,500 kms of wide open road.

Mot wakes up one morning to find that her heart is missing from her chest. She can breathe; she has a pulse—but she feels… nothing.

So, she decides to go and look for it. With her Dog enlisted as co-pilot, Mot heads down the Highway of Lost Hearts: into the deepest core of the Australian outback—navigating red dirt landscapes, fire and flood, brittle dryness, vast salt lakes, age-old mountains and murky waters filled with lost souls.

An allegory for a country that’s lost its heart, Highway of Lost Hearts, by award-winning Darwin playwright Mary Anne Butler, is half gritty road journey, half magic realism and all heart. It leaves you pondering the question: when your heart goes missing, what lengths will you go to, in order to find it again?

A truly regional story is presented in a brand-new production starring theatrical powerhouse Kate Smith, with original live music by Central West icons Smith & Jones.


Beyond brilliant, Kate is a powerhouse of talent, and Smith & Jones are equally wonderful. I laughed, I cried and left with an open heart. A must see!

Great show. Loved it. An enquiry into the Australian psyche which left it found flawed and full of an ambivalent humanity.

Superb show. Superb everything!
