Pieces of a Man's Heart - A Play in One Act

by Kevin T Baldwin (Author)



The Time – Fall, 2005   

Evelyn Murtaugh has traveled to Morganton, North Carolina from Chicago, Illinois to see Mrs. Heidi Traub on a very important matter.  Evelyn’s adoptive father passed away unexpectedly, and in his will left instructions that Evelyn was to receive a package.  In the package, which Evelyn was told was twenty years old, there was a sealed envelope containing a cardboard puzzle piece. The game piece looked like half of a heart pendant.  There was also a note inside, from Evelyn's biological father. In the note, he instructs "Evie" to seek out and return the missing piece of the heart.
