Dana H. will play its final performance at 2pm on Saturday November 13, 2021. Is This a Room will play its final performance at 3pm on Sunday November 14, 2021. Both plays were initially slated for limited runs through Sunday January 16, 2022.

"We are so proud that these two extraordinary, groundbreaking plays have had a chance to receive Broadway life and the celebration they deserve. Each of these plays expands the definition of what a Broadway play can be in thrilling and innovative ways," said producers Dori Berinstein, Sally Horchow and Matt Ross. "While we would've loved to run through our original end date, we recognize that we are in a challenging landscape for live performance and we're grateful to have had a chance to share this work. We urge audiences to not miss out on what audiences and critics have rightly called 'unmissable' new theatre."

Is This A Room began previews on Broadway on September 24, 2021, and officially opened on October 11, 2021. Dana H. began previews on October 1, 2021, and officially opened on October 17, 2021. The two plays perform on a rotating schedule at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre.

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, conceiver and director Tina Satter has wrought an extraordinary human drama between Reality (Emily Davis) 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 stars Emily Davis as Reality Winner alongside Becca Blackwell ("Ramy") as Unknown Male, Will Cobbs ("For Life") as Agent Taylor and Pete Simpson (Gatz) as Agent Garrick. Duane Cooper (Solitary) and Katherine Romans (Men on Boats) serve as understudies.

The production reunites the full design team from the Vineyard Theatre production, with scenic design by Parker Lutz (Ghost Rings), costume design by Enver Chakartash (Straight White Men), lighting design by Thomas Dunn (The Little Dog Laughed), sound design by Lee Kinney (Daddy) and Sanae Yamada (Vive la Void), original music by Yamada, and puppet design by Amanda Villalobos (Amélie). Broadway casting is by Taylor Williams.

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. Deirdre O'Connell reprises her Obie Award-winning performance for the Broadway production of Dana H., with Jordan Baker (Suddenly, Last Summer) as Standby for "Dana H."

Dana H. is by Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Lucas Hnath (A Doll's House, Part 2; The Christians), adapted from interviews with Dana Higginbotham, conducted by Steve Cosson, and directed by Les Waters (In the Next Room, or the vibrator play).

The production reunites the full creative team from the Vineyard Theatre production, with scenic design by Andrew Boyce (Plot Points in Our Sexual Development), costume design by Janice Pytel (Our Town), lighting design by Paul Toben (The Story of My Life), audio editing & sound design by Obie Award-winner Mikhail Fiksel (Cambodian Rock Band) and illusion & lip sync consultation by Steve Cuiffo (The Thin Place). Broadway casting is by Taylor Williams.
