Jennifer Ward-Lealand directs Cassandra Woodhouse in the acclaimed one-woman play, Hanna by Sam Potter.

Being a young mum is supposed to be hard – but for Hanna, the only thing she’s ever been brilliant at is raising her beloved daughter, Ellie.

But then a DNA test reveals staggering news: Ellie is not Hanna’s child – and now her ‘real’ parents want to meet.

Is Hanna obliged to let these strangers into her daughter’s life? And how do you explain a mix-up in an overstretched maternity ward to a three-year-old? Forced to question what being a parent really means, she makes a drastic decision that will change all their lives.

Sam Potter’s funny, heartfelt and compelling one-woman play, Hanna delicately weaves in questions of racial identity, economic privilege, and the lottery of birth – and asks: what does “family” actually mean in today’s society?

Premiering in London in 2018, and proudly presented by NZ Theatre Company in its Auckland premiere, Hanna will be the first for the company, whose aim is to bring professional productions into community theatre spaces.

Starring Cassandra Woodhouse, most recently seen on The Eggplant and the global ‘Keep it real online campaign’ and directed by seasoned practitioner Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Hanna opened at the intimate Dolphin Theatre, Onehunga on 28th April 2022 before touring to Baycourt Theatre, Tauranga on 3rd June 2022.
