BROKEN HEART LAND will open Thursday, November 6, 2014 for 12 performances. Performances will be a the Workshop Theater Mainstage in Midtown Manhattan.
Broken Heart Land by Vicki Lynn Mooney is set in Tulsa, Indian Territory, 1903. Before Oklahoma became a state in 1907, and before the land was opened to homesteaders, whites of that time
were stealthily moving into Indian Territory, intermarrying with tribal people, and trying to take their land.
Broken Heart Land is the story of Alma Wimsey, the mixed-blood daughter of a Cherokee father and white mother. At thirteen Alma is manipulated into an arranged marriage so that her white grandfather can exert control over her tribal land allotment and control miles of acreage along the railroad right-of-way through Tulsa.
But, Alma is just as willful and wily as the old man. She goes through with the marriage, but she rebels against and destroys her grandfather’s plans of empire. By embracing her Cherokee heritage, Alma frees herself to live the life she chooses and finds her own way to true love.
