In a Heart Beat follows the story of Jamie, a frustrated teenager with big ideas to leave his school and family all behind at the very first chance he gets. An outsider in his town, Jamie is suddenly hurtled into a journey beyond his known parameters.

In a Heart Beat was created by STC Artists in Residence, playwright Jo Turner and director Susanna Dowling, following consultations and a range of workshops with community and school groups in the Armidale region.
