Improving our society's ability to engage emotionally with end-of-life experience is essential as we care for one another in our families and communities.

Improving a culture of LGBT inclusion is essential in the fields of health care, social services, business, law, government, education and the military.

Each performance of A Finished Heart creates a powerful, innovative event that increases empathy with same-sex couples and serves as a catalyst for personal growth as we experience the intimacy of caregiving and dying in an atmosphere of love.

A Finished Heart


A Finished Heart brings audience members to deeply connect with the author, with their own emotions and

with each other.

Workshops are available to further explore themes of the performance. Facilitators affiliated with your organization or professionals of your choice are welcome to lead these educational opportunities.

A Finished Heart has received enthusiastic support and praise from individuals, granting organizations and

non-profits since 2009. In 2016, the work was invited for inclusion in New York's United Solo Festival. It has been utilized for continuing education approved by the National Association of Social Workers.
