Dana H. is a must-watch play at the Royal Court Theatre. The Broadway hit, directed by Les Waters, explores Dana Higginbotham's harrowing story, presented through her recorded voice and words. The play has been critically acclaimed for its innovative storytelling and Deirdre O’Connell's stunning performance, which earned her a Tony Award. The narrative unfolds through O’Connell’s meticulous lip-syncing of recorded interviews with Dana, reconstructed by her son, playwright Lucas Hnath. The play challenges our perceptions of good and evil and pushes the boundaries of theatrical storytelling.
Dana H. tells the harrowing real-life story of Dana Higginbotham, a hospital chaplain, who was held captive by a mentally ill ex-convict for five months. Told through her voice and words, the play presents a raw and honest account of her ordeal. The narrative breaks the boundaries between reality and fiction, providing a deep and disturbing insight into the human psyche.

The Royal Court Theatre, located on Sloane Square, is a renowned theatre globally, especially for showcasing new writing. Established in 1870, the theatre has undergone multiple renovations, the most recent being a £16.2 million redevelopment completed in 2000. In 1956, the English Stage Company, led by George Devine, turned the Royal Court into a hub for new British and foreign plays, marking a golden age. Notably, John Osborne's Look Back in Anger, among the first ESC productions, achieved both critical and commercial success, eventually transferring to the West End and Broadway. The Upstairs studio, inaugurated in 1969 with a capacity of 63, hosted early productions such as the world premiere of The Rocky Horror Show.
