MSU Theatre’s ‘A Piece of My Heart’ explores war experience

Minot State University’s Program of Theatre Arts presents Shirley Lauro’s “A Piece of My Heart” Feb. 24-28 in Aleshire Theater at 7:30 p.m. Carlen Gilseth, assistant professor of communication arts, will direct the play. Doors open at 7 p.m.

“A Piece of My Heart” tells the real-life experiences of six nurses before, during and after their tour of duty in Vietnam. The women struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and a nation that shunned them.

“I have a talented group of women, and an ensemble to match, who will bring the true stories of Vietnam to life before the audience members’ eyes,” Gilseth said. “Come and enjoy the stories these young thespians have to tell from celebrated author Shirley Lauro. This is a powerful piece of theatre that has been given over 2,000 performances around the globe.”

For tickets, contact the MSU theater box office at 858-3172. Tickets are $6 for adults; $5 for seniors, students and children under 18. MSU students, faculty and staff are admitted free with current MSU ID. Some material may not be appropriate for all ages. Discretion is advised. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
