TWO ROOMS

by Lee Blessing - Time Magazine's "Best Play of the Year" (1988) 


The Seeing Place Theater, known for intense & intimate ensemble work, brings you TWO ROOMS by Lee Blessing, the story of an American kidnapping by terrorists in Beirut which sets off a brutal tug of war between the US Government and the Media - and a wife caught in the middle. 

 

After an American teacher is held hostage in a windowless cubicle in the Middle East, his wife, Lainie, finds herself (and the US Government) powerless to do anything about it. In order to symbolically share his ordeal, she strips a room in their home bare and holds a vigil for him until she can garner enough media attention to strong-arm the State Department into action. As Michael’s life hangs precariously in the balance, Lainie must deal with a story-hungry reporter and an emotionally detached bureaucrat while hoping to find a way to reconnect with her husband.

 

Named "Best Play of the Year" by Time Magazine in 1988, TWO ROOMS is a revealing portrait of solitude and devotion reverberating with everyday headlines - a love story interrupted by the things we most try to ignore.

WHO IS THE SEEING PLACE? 

The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company which, by placing a keen focus on behavioral storytelling, has become well-known for intense and intimate, ensemble work. Productions are rehearsed in a structured, organic manner, involving heavy script analysis and improvisation. Emphasis is placed on elements of acting craft, allowing actors the freedom to discover the story with the audience on a nightly basis. There is very little action that is "blocked" or staged, and many audience members have commented that they feel like a fly-on-the-wall observer of a real event.
