He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box

Set in Georgia and New York City in 1941, He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box by Adrienne Kennedy is a 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.
