Taylor University’s Mitchell Theatre will present the critically-acclaimed Vietnam War drama, A Piece of My Heart. Written by Shirley Lauro, this powerful play follows six women’s time in the Vietnam War and their complicated arrival home. Five nurses and a country western singer walk through their individual stories of confusion, loss and heartache. The production, which uses true stories, will be directed by Taylor University’s Theatre director, Tracy Manning.

The production brings a new light on women’s involvement in the Vietnam War. Taylor University Theatre invites all veterans to see the play at a half-price discount on tickets. The Vietnam Veterans Association calls A Piece of My Heart, “the most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation.”

Show times for A Piece of My Heart are February 20, 21, 27, and 28 at 8:00 p.m. Matinee performances are at 2:00 p.m., February 22 and March 1.
