Winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Solo Show, the critically acclaimed Dana H. arrives at Berkeley Rep following a triumphant Broadway run last fall. This riveting, cutting-edge drama follows the powerful true story of Dana Higginbotham, a counselor in a psychiatric ward who was kidnapped by one of the patients and held captive in a series of Florida motel rooms for five months.Told in Dana's own courageous words and reconstructed for the stage by her son Lucas Hnath (A Doll’s House, Part 2; The Christians), and expertly directed by Les Waters, Dana H. shatters conventions of the art form and delivers a highly theatrical, deeply intimate exploration of good, evil, and – ultimately – of grace.
Produced in association with Broadway producers Matt Ross, Sally Horchow, and Dori Berinstein.
