About He Brought Her Heart Back

Set in Georgia and New York City in 1941, this new work by one of America’s greatest living dramatists is a heartbreaking and nail-biting memory tale of segregation, theatrical yearning, and doomed love. The action, driven by lyrical parallel monologues and a chilling 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. Adrienne Kennedy, the doyenne of African-American drama, is also one of America’s most celebrated dramatic innovators. The world premiere of her first new play in a decade is directed by Evan Yionoulis.
