SynopsisThe Heart Is A Lonely Hunter follows John Singer, a deaf man who resides in a local boarding house, and four other vivid but desperately lonesome residents in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Mick Kelly, a 14-year-old tomboy who dreams of becoming a concert pianist; Benedict Copeland, the town's only black doctor; Jake Blount, a drunken political activist; and Biff Brannon, a recent widower and owner of the town's diner and bar. As each finds solace in Singer's ability to listen, they all unintentionally overlook their confidante's profound isolation in this timeless tale woven from the lives of ordinary people. -- Target 2-for-1 Sunday Matinees October 16, 23 and 30, 2011 at 3pm Sign Language-Interpreted Sunday, October 23 at 3pm Saturday, October 29 at 7:30pm Sunday, October 30 at 3pm Open Captioning Sunday, October 23 at 3pm Audio Description and Touch Tour Sunday, October 16 - 1:30pm touch tour; 3pm performance
