PREVIEW: Bazaar Productions, Particularly in the Heartland

Bazaar Productions, The Foundry, West Stockbridge, MA
August 8 – August 18, 2019

“Particularly in the Heartland” spotlights a trio of siblings living on a Kansas farm. The children are orphaned after their parents’ disappearance by a tornado—or was it an alien invasion? Or possibly the Rapture? The Springer youth are left to raise themselves. They are soon joined by three outsiders: Dorothy, a New Yorker fallen from an airplane; Tracey Jo, a pregnant teen claiming to be an alien; and the ghost of 1968 presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy. Out of the chaos emerges a new kind of American family.

Bazaar’s work is exactly as the title means; it is odd, strange, unusual, funny or sad. Young actors and crew who are twentysomethings do all of the work backstage, onstage, and in administration. The play is directed by one of Bazaar’s founders Sara Kazoff.

While Bazaar Productions is approximately 10 years old, this is there first summer season at their new home in West Stockbridge, MA
