September 8, 2011 by Kean Media

In September 2011, Premiere Stages produced Hannah by John Wooten, directed by Adam Immerwahr. This timeless piece, based on actual events, 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 powerful portrayal of a young woman's fearless commitment to making the world a better place.
