A young mathematician carrying a copy of The Old Man and the Sea travels from Afghanistan to Omaha, and arrives on the doorstep of retired literature professor Dr. Harold Banks. Across the world in Maidan Shar, Harold's adopted daughter teaches The Diary of Anne Frank and finds herself unexpectedly in love. Heartland is a magical new play about family, grace, and the consequences of defending an American Empire.
