Watch Now: Dana H. Company on the Harrowing True Story It’s Based on

After an acclaimed run at the Vineyard Theatre Off-Broadway, Dana H. is now playing at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre. In this video, playwright Lucas Hnath, director Les Waters, and star Deirdre O’Connell discuss the harrowing true story the play is based on.

Deirdre O’Connell reprises her Obie Award-winning performance for the Broadway production of Dana H. Jordan Baker (Suddenly, Last Summer) serves as Standby for the title role.

The production reunites the full creative team from the Vineyard Theatre production, with scenic design by Andrew Boyce (Plot Points in Our Sexual Development), costume design by Janice Pytel (Our Town), lighting design by Paul Toben (The Story of My Life), audio editing & sound design by Obie Award-winner Mikhail Fiksel (Cambodian Rock Band), and illusion & lip sync consultation by Steve Cuiffo (The Thin Place). Broadway casting is by Taylor Williams.

Dana H. tells the harrowing true story of a woman held captive in a series of Florida motels for five months. Told in Dana’s own words and reconstructed for the stage by her son, playwright Lucas Hnath, this groundbreaking work shatters the boundaries of the art form and challenges our understanding of good and evil.

Currently in previews, Dana H. officially opens October 17, 2021. The production plays alternating performances with Is This A Room for a 17-week engagement through January 16, 2022.
