A Piece of My Heart

by Shirley Lauro

29 Mar - 8 Apr 2006



“A Piece of My Heart” tells the inspiring true stories of courageous women who served in Vietnam and their heart-wrenching struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and the nation that shunned them. The drama centres on a career Army woman, an American Red Cross volunteer, a Navy nurse, two Army nurses, an entertainer, and the men who surrounded them. Told in flash-back, the play moves through a 20 year period from the time they are sent to Vietnam, follows their obstacles and triumphs after returning home, and the eventual recognition of Vietnam veterans with a ceremony at the Memorial Wall in Washington.
