In the karri forests of the South West, Theresa and her partner Ellie find an unfinished manuscript by a famous author. Theresa is drawn into the world of the manuscript, one of sex, secrets, and ghosts. Ellie is less worried about literary mysteries and more about Theresa’s interest in violent colonial romances. As the tropes of the dashing widower, the whispering trees, and the mysterious animal deaths mount, Theresa must make a choice about how the story ends and how she sees the past.
Directed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler (The Vibrator Play, Improvement Club) and written by Clare Testoni (Tale of Tales, The Double) Heed The Spark is a contemporary look at the stories that haunt us and the marks they leave.
