Dana was a psych ward chaplain when she became close with a troubled patient, an ex-con looking for a new life. Through text drawn directly from interviews with Dana, we learn the gripping true story of what followed. Dana is kidnapped by the patient and forced to travel with him across Florida for five months. Dana H. is the harrowing tale of an intimate bond that becomes an inescapable nightmare.

The show’s only performer, acclaimed downtown theatre actress Deirdre O’Connell, lip-syncs to audio of interviews conducted with the real Dana in a performance praised for its “"near-perfect specificity" by The New York Times and declared “astonishing” by Time Out. O’Connell won both Outer Critics Circle and Obie Awards for the performance following a 2020 run at off-Broadway’s Vineyard Theatre.

The off-Broadway run of Dana H. won universal critical acclaim. The New York Times called it “haunting,” “brilliant” and “one of the richest works of theater to come along in many seasons,” while New York Magazine praised its “well-honed beauty.” Get your Dana H. Broadway tickets today.

What to Watch For

  • Playwright Lucas Hnath is best known for the Broadway hit A Doll’s House, Part 2, which won the Tony Award for Best Play in 2017. His play Hillary and Clinton was also seen on Broadway in 2019.
  • The text of the Dana H. play is drawn entirely from interviews conducted with the real Dana, who is playwright Lucas Hnath’s mother. Hnath edited and shaped the interviews into a theatrical piece.
  • The interviews with Dana which form the basis of Dana H. were conducted by Steve Cosson, a celebrated experimental theater artist, whose voice is also heard in the show.
  • Dana H. plays in repertory on Broadway with Is This A Room. Both are documentary style plays which ran Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre.
  • Though Dana H. was able to reach opening night at the Vineyard in early 2020, its acclaimed run was ultimately cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic.


Unfortunately, tickets for this event are no longer available.
