Coming to Broadway from the Vineyard Theatre.

The New York Times Critic’s Pick:
“BRILLIANT! ONE OF THE RICHEST, MOST COMPLETE WORKS OF THEATER TO COME ALONG IN MANY SEASONS. DEIRDRE O’CONNELL IS MARVELOUS.

Lucas Hnath’s “Dana H.” is a one-woman drama that explodes expectations at every turn. By its end, you realize that its singular power could be achieved only in real time, on a stage, with a live audience as its witness.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Lucas Hnath’s DANA H. is the real thing.”
“Waters, Hnath and O’Connell have made something intensely theatrical that reaches devastating emotional heights.” – Helen Shaw, New York Magazine

“O’Connell is simply astonishing.”
– Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

“Heart-Pounding. 75 Gripping Minutes.”
– Zachary Stewart, Theatermania

  • SYNOPSIS

    Dana H. is a disturbing and true story.   Dana was held captive  in a series of motels in Florida.   She was terrified and disoriented for five months.   The story is told in Dana's own words and arranged for the stage by her son Lucas Hnath.  This ground-breaking work pushes the boundaries of live theatre as well as our definitions of good and evil.  Winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Solo Show as well as Lortel and Obie Awards for Deirdre O’Connell’s “simply astonishing” performance (Time Out NY). Recommended for ages 16+ for vivid descriptions of violence.
