Canada 1914. Sarah McCrea stands on the threshold of womanhood, facing a bright future in a new country.

But when Sarah and Michael’s relationship deepens by Nicola McCartney and his determination to define his identify catches fire, centuries of conflict threaten to blight their love. And for Sarah, the realisation dawns that old battles are being fought on new territory. First staged in 1998, Heritage is a poignant and poetic exploration of love, identity, tribalism and the need to belong. As stark and poignant as the sweeping landscape it conjures, all at once it is epic, lyrical and timeless. Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions.
