The Golden West College Theater Arts department has assembled a talented cast to star in their upcoming production of Shirley Lauro’s A PIECE OF MY HEART.

Performance dates are November 11 – 20 in the Golden West College Mainstage Theater. Tickets are on sale now through the GWC Theater Arts department website at or through the GWC box office at 714-895-8150.

Starring in this unique production are Renee Curtis, Katherine Heflin, Nicole Kelder, Lydia McDonald, Zia Wynn, Catherine Yount and Matthew Cobb. Director of this production is Martie Ramm.

A Piece of My Heart is a powerful work that explores the heart, music and soul of a tumultuous era in our history. It is the true story of six courageous American women sent to serve in Vietnam in the late 1960’s and their struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and the nation that shunned them. So powerful, it has been named “the most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation,” by The Vietnam Vets Association. A Piece of My Heart was a finalist for The Susan Blackburn Prize, the winner of The Barbara Deming Prize for Women Playwrights and The Kittredge Foundation Award. This production contains adult language and situations, and is intended for mature audiences.

As part of the 50th Anniversary of Golden West College, the Sunday, November 13 matinee performance will be followed by a discussion of the play with the director, actors, designers and special guests.
