WEST STOCKBRIDGE — “Particularly in the Heartland,” an interactive theater piece originally created and devised by the Brooklyn-based company, The TEAM, opens Thursday at The Foundry, in a new interpretation from Bazaar Productions, the resident theater company at The Foundry, 2 Harris St..

Directed by Bazaar Productions’ co-artistic director Sara Katzoff, and featuring an ensemble of emerging performers and designers, “Particularly in the Heartland” runs through Aug. 18 beginning with a gala fund-raising party and performance Thursday evening. Doors open at 6 p.m. with a reception and silent auction, followed at 7 by the performance and a dabce iarty at 9.

Remaining performances through Aug. 18 are Friday, Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 8; this Saturday afternoon at 2; and Sunday afternoons at 5 at The Foundry.

Set in Kansas in 2004, “Particularly in the Heartland” spotlights a trio of siblings living on a farm. Orphaned after their parents’ disappearance by tornado—or was it an alien invasion? Or possibly the Rapture?—the Springer children 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.

“Particularly in the Heartland” is produced in collaboration with The Foundry and the Boston University Professional Training Initiative.
