A Piece of My Heart
[PG-13 for Themes of War and Violence]
7:30 p.m., Oct. 3-6, 2012
By Shirley Lauro
The true stories of five brave women sent to Vietnam and their struggle to make sense of a war that irrevocably changed them and a nation that ignored them. The work, with the music and soul of a turbulent era of our past, follows five women: two nurses, a Red Cross worker, a USO entertainer and an officer—before, during and after their tours in war-torn Vietnam. A gripping story that ends as each woman leaves a personal memento at the memorial wall in Washington. “A riveting, rending dramatic experience,” writes the Louisville Courier Journal.

A dark comedy full of quirky characters is making its collegiate premiere at the Warehouse! Despite her two daughters’ insistence, Eleanor refuses surgery to remove a possibly life-threatening wristwatch that was left in her skull decades earlier during a brain surgery—not because she is afraid, rather because every surgeon that has tried to remove it has died in the process. Set in the neurology ward of an American hospital, a suicidal amnesiac joins Eleanor and her daughters in hilariously tormenting an incompetent medical student who can’t catch a break. When backdoor deals are hashed, the stakes of this quick-paced comedy will keep you on the edge of your seat.

By Mike Daisey
The Warehouse is ecstatic to present the regional premiere of this provocative realistic satire. Mike Daisey's razor-sharp wit has turned heads across the country with his tale of America’s most-famed technology icon and the empire he created. Agony/Ecstasy is a story of pride, beauty, lust and how our obsessions shape our lives—illuminating our love affair with technology and the human cost of creating it. In an unusual twist for most playwrights, Daisey is allowing theatres such as the Warehouse the chance to adapt and interpret the script as they would like. As a result, our creative and unique production will be one you WILL NOT see anywhere else!

This wickedly funny comedy is filled with David Mamet’s “trademark tart dialogue and impeccable plotting, spiced with Wildean wit.” Anna and Claire, two women living together on the edge of society, participate in a raunchy comedy of errors as they subsequently taunt their ill-fated maid. Anna has recently become the mistress of a wealthy man, while Claire is enamored with a young girl and hopes to enlist the help of jealous Anna for a rendezvous. The arrival of Claire’s ladylove sparks a boiling point that puts the women’s future together in jeopardy.
