    FROM THE WORDS AND WRITINGS OF DANA H.

    By Lucas Hnath
    Adapted from Interviews with
    Dana Higginbotham Conducted by Steve Cosson
    Directed by Les Waters

    World Premiere

    LUCAS HNATH IS ONE OF THE FRESHEST PLAYWRITING VOICES TO EMERGE IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS
    -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

    Dana Higginbotham was a psych ward chaplain. Jim was a patient, an ex-convict who told her he was searching for redemption. From the Words and Writings of Dana H. recounts the harrowing true story of the five months Dana was held captive—trapped in a series of Florida motels, disoriented, terrified, and with her life in Jim’s hands. Told in Dana’s own words and 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.
    A co-production with Goodman Theatre
