One woman's fearless commitment to making the world a better place...

By John Wooten
Directed by Adam Immerwahr

Based on actual events, Hannan tells the story of freedom fighter and poet Hannah Senesh, who parachuted behind enemy lines during World War II to help Jews escape from Nazi-occupied Hungary. The play is a moving and powerful portrayal of a young woman's fearless commitment to making the world a better place.
