Six women gave their lives for their country; a country who then forgot about them. Our play is to make sure we never forget.

7,484 Women (6,250 of these women were nurses) served in Vietnam.
10 to 24% left the profession when they returned.
Up to 48% sought mental health counseling.
Many others chose to fight their personal battles alone.


These are simple statistics from a time long since past. But numbers are just numbers without the stories that make them real. "A Piece of My Heart," which we aim to produce in late October, strives to bring these stories to light. It recounts the journeys of six women who survived the war, only to be left to fight their own battles at home. We at IV Productions do not think it is enough for you to hear their story, we hope to help you experience it. With performance and multimedia, our audience will travel with these characters and join them in their struggles. We have a team, a goal, and spaces in mind. Now we need your help to bring our plan to fruition.

These stories are important. If we do not remember them, we cannot stop them from happening again. Veterans make up approximately 25% of our nation's homeless adults. Nationwide, about 130,000 ex-servicemen and women do not have anywhere to live. Organizations, including non-profit groups assisting the homeless, believe the figure is much higher.


It is up to us to prevent history from repeating itself. Listen, Learn, React.
