With Judith Partelow’s original poetry as its foundation, this new production of “A Woman’s Heart” is a captivating tale of friendship, heartache, and triumph.
Three close friends (Partelow, McCoy, and Rod Owens) reconnect at their 50th high school reunion to find that their mutual inspirations from and impacts on each other have not only endured, but have, ultimately, made all the difference in their respective lives.
“A Woman’s Heart” was first presented in 2017 and hailed as “funny, sexy, gutsy, and vulnerable.” In one of many rave reviews of earlier productions, Kelley Brocco-Hagen wrote, “The play was FANTASTIC! Touched my heart profoundly! This needs major exposure!”
This new collaboration by McCoy and Partelow reduces the number of characters from four to three and features a new story approach, shaping Partelow’s poetry into a compelling, music-filled journey through a writer’s life, and starring the collaborators themselves. Replete with life events and cultural references from the 1950s to the present, the play will resonate with all, particularly baby boomers.
The play is now also infused with the music of the boomer era, plus original music written by McCoy, Owens, and Partelow’s daughter Amanda Sevak.
