The popular work that centers on one woman's efforts to rescue her kidnapped husband half a world away will play a limited engagement through Oct. 19. An official opening night has been set for Oct. 7.
The Platform Theatre Group production marks the third New York City presentation of Two Rooms in 2008, following productions by Roust Theatre Company and Three's Company Productions.
The cast features Adding Machine's Adinah Alexander as well as Patrick Boll (Rise of Dorothy Hale, Boys in the Band), Angela Christian (Woman in White) and Michael Milligan (Thom Pain).
Two Rooms explores the relationship and lives of a man held hostage in the Middle East and his American wife who is attempting to reconnect with him by any means possible – ultimately stripping her home of all its furniture in order to share her husband's experience in captivity.
