The Shifting Heart, Richard Beynon , single work drama

The Shifting Heart is set in the Melbourne suburb of Collingwood on Christmas eve, 1956. It explores the tensions between three sets of neighbours: the Bianchis, the Pratts, and the Fowlers, who represent different aspects of Australian culture of the time. Racism and the changes brought by immigration are the central themes of the play.
