Two Rooms PLOT
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Or, at least so it seems when it comes to terrorist politics
and the relationship between the government and the
media. Though originally produced in 1988, Lee Blessing's
Two Rooms could not be more timely.
The play tells the
story of Michael Wells, an American professor at a
university in Beirut, who is captured by a militant faction
and held in a tiny cell for three years. Back in the United
States, his wife Lainie, has "cleansed" his former office by
removing everything from it. She spends most of her time
there to share in his experience as much as she can.
Throughout the course of the play, she is visited by
Walker Harris, a newspaper reporter, and Ellen Van Oss,
the government official who has been assigned to her.
