    ‘He Brought Her Heart Back,’ Adrienne Kennedy’s Beautiful Nightmare

    Ben Brantley

    January 30, 2018: They are at their exquisite peak, this boy and girl stepping through the shadows. They are far enough from childhood to be fully formed but not yet coarsened by adulthood, as delicate of limb and feature as mantelpiece figurines. Only the slight differences in the shades of their perfect skins suggest they are not a matched set. If you’re thinking that anyone this fine and fragile is destined to be shattered, you are right. You need only listen to what they’re saying, in hypnotic Southern accents to realize that whatever exists between them, it doesn’t have a chance of survival in the early 1940s.
