I Carry Your Heart With Me

Esther Shannon is a government stenographer working for the US Air Force during the tempestuous Vietnam War. Lonely, conflicted, and haunted by voices from her past, Esther finds herself smack dab in the middle of a troubling investigation that could change the course of her life. With plenty of twists and turns along the way, this play for one woman is a suspenseful mystery that packs a real emotional wallop at the end.
