Deirdre O’Connell steps up in this very unique challenge of lip-syncing to seventy-five minutes of audio recordings. Her performance is seamless. Her emotional state is spot on connected to the recorded voice of Dana H. The timing of her movements is rhythmically at one with the vocal patterns. Every breath bonds her with the real Dana H. It is a truly captivating performance.
Lucas Hnath skillfully edited and compiled these very personal interviews to create an engaging piece of theatre. The brutal journey is masterfully plotted. Mr. Hnath far exceed any sense of accomplishment as he applies his writing skills to this horrific and emotional story to which he is so closely related.
