We Honor the Sacrifice Made by All Military Families with Special Ticket Prices

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.
