He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box


Set in Georgia and New York City in 1941 this heartbreaking memory tale of segregation and doomed love braids together Jim Crow, sexual hypocrisy, and the lingering shadow of a terrible crime. The world premiere of her first new play in a decade is directed by Evan Yionoulis who staged the award-winning TFANA production of Kennedy’s Ohio State Murders.

Running Time: Approximately 45 minutes with no intermission.


“He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box. Now there’s an evocative title for you, conjuring dread, romance and a tragic surrealism all at once. Such is the distinctively poetic and terrifying universe of Adrienne Kennedy.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times, 5 Shows to See if You’re in New York in January
