The Abundance of the Heart


Brenda arrives at the ER with raising health concerns. Her two children sit bedside with her as they all open old and unsettled wounds. As the nurse and doctor evaluate her, we find that her
health is not the only thing that's been left untreated. This play was produced in the Women's Work Short Play Festival at New Perspectives Theatre Company in August 2019.


Breana wrote this play to bring awareness to the racism black women face in the American Healthcare system. To inspire black women and their families to become their own advocates when they face racial biases and the lack of proper care when seeking medical treatment.
