He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box

WORLD PREMIERE

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
