Adapted from the novel by Carson McCullers, THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER explores a universal longing for connection. At its center is John Singer, a lonely deaf man, who becomes the confidant to a constellation of disparate souls—an angry carnival worker, a crusading physician, the owner of a failing café and a fifteen-year-old girl in love with music—all seeking understanding and compassion from a man desperately in need of understanding himself. Each pours their heart out to Singer, and he in turn changes their disenchanted lives in ways they could never imagine. Moving, sensitive and deeply humane, THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER examines loneliness, the human need for understanding, and our search for love.
"Gilman creates an eloquent, unsentimental and ineffably sad tapestry of broken Depression-era dreams." —Time Magazine. "It was brave of Rebecca Gilman to return to the original source material for this stunning stage treatment." —Variety. "[Succeeds] in capturing the essence of McCullers' book…[a] theatrical work of art." —Bergen Record. "We owe a debt of gratitude to Rebecca Gilman for giving us a chance to become acquainted or reacquainted with the characters who launched [McCullers'] all too brief but fruitful career." —CurtainUp.
