'Dana H.' Calendar


May – June 2019

EVENT: “Dana H.” By Lucas Hnath
Adapted from Interviews with Dana Higginbotham Conducted by Steve Cosson
Directed by Les Waters
World Premiere
Co-produced with Goodman Theatre

DESCRIPTION: “Dana H.” tells the real-life story of Hnath’s own mother. A nondenominational
hospice chaplain, Dana had stared death in the face on countless occasions, but
when she helped a mentally ill ex-convict turn his life around, she suddenly found her
own life hanging in the balance. “Dana H.” recounts the harrowing five-month
odyssey as she was held captive by, traveled with and eventually escaped her
unstable captor. Told Dana’s own words, reconstructed for the stage by her son,
award-winning playwright Lucas Hnath (“A Doll’s House, Part 2,”
“The Christians”), this innovative work of theatre shatters the boundaries of the form
and of our understanding of good and evil.
