Written by Shirley Lauro, a powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: nurses, a Red Cross volunteer and a USO country-western singer. The latter is booked to entertain the troops by an unscrupulous agent. Follow each young woman’s story before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation. It was named “The most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation,” by The Vietnam Vets Association.
RLT’s Women and War series explores the experiences of women at home and in combat during times of war. To accompany "A Piece of My Heart," which is set in Vietnam, "Grounded" and "Downrange: Voices from the Homefront" look at the current experience of military service.
This project is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources. Supported by a grant from the Paul Green Foundation, Inc. Serving the Arts and Human Rights since 1982 Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
