A Piece of My Heart
by Shirley Lauro, Directed by Deborah Dickey
May 15-June 7, 2015
Arriving at the Acrosstown in May! Recently named “The most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation,” by The Vietnam Vets Association, A Piece of My Heart is guaranteed to touch even the most hardened heart.
Six young women go to Viet Nam— an Army brat turned Navy nurse, a wannabe rock-star turned USO performer, a nurse who wants to save the world, a debutante and Vassar grad who wants adventure, a streetwise kid who wants to pay for school and protest the war by taking part in it, and a black WAC who finds the racism in her department too limiting— and discover deep truths about themselves and about our world.
A Piece of My Heart runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm from Friday, May 15, through Sunday, June 7 at The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre, in the Baird Center at 619 South Main Street in Gainesville. It contains some strong language and mild adult themes.
“There have been a number of plays dealing with Viet Nam, but none with the direct, emotional impact of Ms. Lauro’s work.” —The New York Times
