Dana H.
Broadway Play
Following a run at Off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre interrupted by the Covid shutdown, the harrowing true story of Dana H. comes to Broadway, playing in repertory with Is This a Room.

SYNOPSIS: Dana was a chaplain of a psych ward where she met a charismatic patient, an ex-convict searching for redemption. A harrowing true story, Dana was held captive with her life in this man’s hands — trapped in a series of Florida motels, disoriented and terrified — for five months. Told in Dana's own words and reconstructed for the stage by her son Lucas Hnath, this innovative work shatters the boundaries of the art form and our understanding of good and evil.

Is This A Room
Broadway Play
Following a sold out run at Off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre in 2019, the theatrical thriller Is This a Room comes to Broadway, playing in repertory with Dana H.

SYNOPSIS: A true story, still unfolding. June 3, 2017. A 25-year-old former Air Force linguist named Reality Winner is surprised at her home by the FBI, interrogated, and then charged with leaking evidence of Russian interference in U.S elections. Reality remains in jail with a record-breaking sentence. The FBI transcript of her interrogation is the heart of Is This a Room, in which an extraordinary human drama unfolds between the complex and witty Reality, and the agents who question her. As Reality’s autonomy shrinks before her eyes, a simmering real-life thriller emerges, asking what it is to have honor in this American moment, and how the personal can reverberate globally.
