"A Piece of My Heart" is the odyssey of six women—five nurses and one USO entertainer—during the Vietnam War. The play traces their lives for about 20 years: from the time of their enlistment in the 1960s to their adjustments to civilian life after the war ended. Each character moves between the present and the past, narrating and reliving their harrowing and poignant experiences. We see how their notions of war changed and how the war changed them.
