Two Rooms | by Lee Blessing
Provocative and compelling, this arresting work deals with a subject much in the minds of contemporary society--the taking of innocent hostages by political terrorists. first presented by California's innovative La Jolla Playhouse, the play illuminates both the numbing agony of the one detained and also the helpless fury of those who are left behind--loved ones impatient for something to be done, and officials who feel they must be guided by logic rather than emotion. "...the playwright's eye is penetrating...[Mr. Blessing] reaffirms his authority with timely political questions" --NY Times. "...a compact and powerful exploration of the hostage-taking of Beirut." --Drama-Logue
