Fishing is recognized as one of the most dangerous occupations in Canada today. The Heart of Things is inspired by a true story of tragedy in a Nova Scotia fishing community. When a stressed out young fisher, Junior, hangs himself to death from the mast of his boat, It inspires his twin, Bren, to act on their lifetime dream, to be accepted as a fisher. 

Heart of Things is a project of HEAT Theatre in partnership with Memory Lane Heritage Village.
