A Piece of My Heart






Theatre, Activism

"A Piece of My Heart" follows six ferocious women to hell and back, telling the often ignored story of female soldiers, nurses, and civilians in wartime Vietnam; replacing nationalist narratives with questions of identity, complicity, and mental health. It explores the lies and mistakes, or ambitions, that sent these women overseas, the brutal choices they made to survive, and the continuing battles of loyalty and conscience they faced when they returned home. Tender, tragic, and stubbornly hopeful, it is a candid portrait of ordinary women, and the war that never really left them.
