A Piece of My Heart

directed by Maggie Bearmon Pistner

by Shirley Lauro, Inspired by the book by Keith Walker

March 4-18, 2006

Souls are lost, bodies destroyed, friendships forged in a war that haunts us still. Six American women give voice to their experiences in Vietnam.

This activity was made possible, in part, by funds provided by Target, and by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council from an appropriation by the Minnesota Legislature.
