"A profound contribution to the theater"
– Los Angeles Times

Sept 6 - Oct 6, 2019 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 75 minutes with no intermission

“I want to be a part of the world again.” - Dana H.

Dana was a chaplain of a psych ward when she met—and was abducted by—a charismatic ex-convict searching for redemption. Based on a harrowing true story, told in Dana's own words and reconstructed for the stage by her son Lucas Hnath, this innovative new work "blurs the lines between documentary and drama" (The Hollywood Reporter).

Recommended for ages 16+ for dark themes and vivid descriptions of violence.
