Is This a Room / Dana H.
Experience two new American plays based on true stories.
"Must-see piece of theater in New York right now."
Two groundbreaking dramas. One Broadway theater.
IS THIS A ROOM is the astonishingly true story of Reality Winner, the 25-year-old former Air Force linguist who was surprised at her home by the FBI on June 3, 2017. The play’s text is taken from the FBI transcript of her interrogation – and from these pages, Tina Satter has wrought an extraordinary human drama between Reality and the agents who question her. In this theatrical thriller, Reality’s life is upended before our eyes, and we’re left questioning American values and the very nature of the truth. IS THIS A ROOM begins previews on September 24, 2021, with an opening on October 11, 2021. --- DANA H. tells the harrowing true story of a woman held captive in a series of Florida motels for five months. Told in Dana's own words and reconstructed for the stage by her son, playwright Lucas Hnath, this groundbreaking work shatters the boundaries of the art form and challenges our understanding of good and evil. DANA H. begins previews on October 1, 2021, with an opening night on October 17, 2021. --- The two productions will play alternating performances for a 17-week engagement through January 16, 2022.
