             Hella Fresh Theater presents Hannah

A new play written and directed by John Rosenberg

Starring Laura Sukonick, Francesca Piccioni and Ben Grinberg

1995.  San Francisco.  Part-time Berkeley students/full-time ravers, Christina, Hannah and Anders live by the covenant of Goa Dance Trance---a party scene devoted to collective consciousness, sensitivity, awareness, compassion, and mind-altering synthetic drugs.  In the middle of the night, in filthy San Francisco warehouses, in the fleeting trance dance moment, they arrive at the door of their spiritual quest to the ethereal essence of Goa Dance Trance.

Fueled by crystal meth, ecstasy, DMT, liquid acid and whatever they just snorted, Anders, Christina and Hannah totter through life and school, waiting for the next party/the next gathering/the next trance dance.  In the pursuit of the ethereal essence of Goa Dance Trance, Anders, Christina and Hannah find the reality they seek in the mind-altered state of dance parties.  After the gatherings, when the sun comes up and the drugs wear off, the trio argues who loves the dj most, use glitter as a weapon and fall out of love.  They must wait for the life affirming next party to rediscover joy and love.  Except each next gathering seems just a little less truthful, more synthetic.  Soon, Anders, Christina and Hannah find themselves collectively---consciously---doing their best to destroy one another.  

Hannah runs October 12th through November 3rd.

All shows are Saturday and Sunday at 2pm. All tickets are $10.

First three weekends at the Papermill Theater, 2825 Ormes Street in Kensington, USA.

Final weekend at the Papermill Theater Center City, 1714 Sansom Street.

Press comps available for any show requested.

John Rosenberg has written and directed The Gambling Room, Alp'D Huez, Automatic Fault Isolation, Queen of All Weapons, California Redemption Value, Jericho Road Improvement Association and Use Both Hands.

"An impetuous playwright who takes a radical approach to independent Philly theater." -City Paper.

"A playwright with a ferocious amount of talent." -Philadelphia Weekly
