What to expect

A serious comedy about the value of family and friendship, the importance of self-forgiveness, and the special healing joy that comes to those who know how to “drink life to the dregs.”

Deep in the Heart, adapted from the award-winning comedy-drama The Deer and the Antelope Play, tells the story of an East Texas family—a mother, daughter, and grandmother—who face tragedy and assorted misfortunes head-on with the help of the strange young woman, believed to be a former prostitute, who comes to live with them.
