Pieces of Me (WIP)
How do we make meaning of loss?
When Jessica was 21, she left the USA disenchanted and bereaved. From afar, she witnessed her country through scandals, social movements, and (inter)national crises. Now, she finds herself yearning to reconnect with hope and her fellow citizens as she watches more people fall into the disillusionment she experienced 10+ years ago.
Pieces of Me is her attempt to answer the question: “How do we make meaning of loss?”
This work-in progress, tragic comedy from LAMDA alumna & Rotary Scholar Jessica Munna intertwines 4 interview-style monologues about how people change after loss. Inspired by documentary interviews & Jessica’s life, meet a coal-mining history buff, a devoted educator, a movie-loving emergency responder, and a disheartened college graduate in Pieces of Me. Expect bitter tears, belly laughs, and lovable characters.
Written & Performed by Jessica Munna
Directed by: Amy Garner Buchanan
