He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box is the first new work in nine years from Adrienne Kennedy, whom The New York Times called “one of the finest living American playwrights.”
Set in Georgia and New York City in 1941, He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box is a heartbreaking, nail-biting memory tale of segregation, theatrical yearning, and doomed love. The action, driven by parallel monologues and a tour through a storeroom of charged images, braids together the indignities of Jim Crow, rising Nazism, sexual hypocrisy, Christopher Marlowe, and the lingering shadow of a terrible crime.
