    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. 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
