Director: Whitney Morton,

Rehearsals begin the week of April 12 and tech begins on May 21. Performances are Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. beginning on May 28 through June 13, 2010.

The true stories of six courageous women sent to Vietnam and their struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and a nation that shunned them. A work with the music and soul of a tumultuous era in our history, full of shattered expectations,
desperate encounters, and the anguish of the war zone.

A Piece of My Heart has earned The Susan Blackburn Prize (Finalist) as Best English Language Play by a Woman, The Barbara Deming Prize for Women Playwrights, and The Kittredge Foundation Award. The Vietnam Vets of America, Inc. has cited the work as "the most enduring play in the nation on Vietnam."


...Shirley Lauro's … play A PIECE OF MY HEART, is a catharsis as well as a coup de theatre...There have been a number of plays dealing with Vietnam...but none with the direct, emotional impact of Ms. Lauro's work...(she) has turned first hand impressions into a disturbing drama that evokes empathy for survivors as victims.         -The New York Times


Produced by special arrangements with Samuel French, Inc.
