The Seymour Centre and White Box Theatre will present Richard Beynon's award-winning Australian classic 'The Shifting Heart' from 8th March to 24th March.

Set in Melbourne over Christmas in the 1950s, the story follows Italian immigrants, the Bianchis, as they attempt to create a new life in Collingwood, Australia. Tragedy strikes when Gino returns to the family home bloodied and battered.

The 'Shifting Heart' is a story of friendship, marriage, trust, honesty and family but also offers an insight in to the psychology of racism and its victims. A wonderful drama representing the migrant experience from Australia's recent past, the story continues to ring true for migrants today.

Described as "exciting, funny and intensely moving", 'The Shifting Heart' asks audiences to reflect on the tragedy the Bianchis experience as well as its relevance to the stories of contemporary immigrants and our responsibility in those stories.
