A Piece of My Heart
Based on true stories, A Piece of My Heart tells the tale of six women stationed in Vietnam during the war. The entire play cycles seamlessly between each woman’s experience during which the other actresses take on the other roles of that story. The first half shows each woman before and during her tour, while the second half depicts the struggles of returning home to an unwelcoming society. I played Leann, a half Chinese half Italian nurse who begins a naive, self-proclaimed hippy but transitions into a woman fighting a downhill struggle with post traumatic stress disorder. This was easily one of the most powerful pieces I’ve experienced, much less been a part of, and it was really an honor to work with the cast and crew on this one.
