Named in honor of Heartland’s former Artistic Director Mike Dobbins, this year’s New Plays from the Heartland program includes three winning one-act plays with the theme “Escape.” Kathleen Kirk serves as Chair/Dramaturg for the project and Don LaCasse directs the staged readings performed July 18, 19 and 20. Performances begin at 7:30 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 2 pm on Sunday. A $5 donation is requested at the door. For reservations, call 309-452-8709 or email Because this project is outside Heartland’s subscription season and because it is partially funded by the Town of Normal Harmon Arts Grant, Flex Passes are not accepted.


Escape! Sometimes we need a little romance in our lives, don’t we? Or do we? Is it possible to escape our woes? Or should we smile and juggle them like oranges? Is there really any vacation from the human condition? Yes! This July it’s time to think outside the goldfish bowl!

Performances July 18, 19 and 20, 2014 / Scott Klavan Open Forum on Playwriting July 17
