About Dana H.
Dana (Deirdre O’Connell) 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.

Dana H. was produced in association with Goodman Theatre and ran at Center Theatre Group’s Kirk Douglas Theatre May 26 – June 23, 2019.
