“This is the first time I’m talking about this in all of these years so I—I'm in—I I’m in this world but I’m not.”
Deirdre O'Connell makes her London stage debut reprising her Tony-winning performance as Dana, a psych ward chaplain who was held captive by a patient in a series of Florida motels for five months.
Dana Higginbotham’s true story is told in her own words and using her own voice, with recorded interviews reconstructed for the stage by Dana’s son, playwright Lucas Hnath, and lip-synced by O’Connell.
Dana H. is directed by Tony-nominated former Royal Court Associate Director Les Waters and features a soundscape by Mikhail Fiksel, winner of the Tony Award for Best Sound Design of a Play.
