Shirley Lauro’s celebration of women who served and sacrificed in Vietnam, “A Piece of My Heart,” is the true story of six courageous American women sent to Vietnam and their struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them.

Based on Keith Walker’s book of the same name, the play pinpoints significant moments in each woman’s journey.

After the war, the women return to civilian life and must reconcile their need to serve humanity with the horrors they experienced during war.

It is a piece about transcendence that deals with the themes of service, heroism, life, death, trauma, forgiveness, sacrifice, despair, depression, rejection, friendship and rebirth.

“A Piece of My Heart” features unsung heroes often overlooked in history.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
