Broken Heart is a dynamic, moving one-act play that has been used by youth ministries, church, and para-church organizations around the world for nearly 30 years. Some groups have utilized live music, recordings, mime, and dance to enhance its message. From widespread use by Young Life at its youth resorts all over the country, to television in Germany, and a women’s ministry in Australia, the play has been viewed by estimated audiences of more than 3 million worldwide.

Broken Heart is a story about a young girl (representing you and I) growing up with hurts by parents, friends, a boyfriend, and others that continue to tear away at her heart. The play makes extensive use of unique props to visually communicate our efforts to protect ourselves from the hurts of life in harmful ways such as through anger, bitterness, busyness, and more.

A Satan figure fiendishly supplies the young girl with “toys” to protect her heart. All the while, Jesus repeatedly approaches her with compassion, only to be rebuffed by the girl for most of the play. God brings healing to the girl’s heart in ways that often surprise viewers and brings tears in the end.

Linda has received hundreds of letters from viewers and participants about how God has used the play to bring healing to their lives. Several movie producers and publishers have approached her about the play but either Linda, or the producer or publisher realized their vision would have put restrictions on the impact of the play in one way or another.
