Blessing's Two Rooms Returns for Second Manhattan Production of 2008

News   Blessing's Two Rooms Returns for Second Manhattan Production of 2008 Lee Blessing's political drama Two Rooms will play its second limited New York engagement in honor of the play's 20th anniversary.

Roust Theatre Company presents the Blessing work, which 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.

Blessing's timely drama has found many admiring theatres of late, with a recent production presented this past March by Three's Company Productions in Manhattan.

The cast of Roust's Two Rooms comprises Tori Davis, Garrett Lee Hendricks, Tracy Hostmyer and Joe Osheroff. James Phillip Gates directs the production running May 8-31.

Creative duties are handled by Casey Smith (set design) and Kryssy Wright (lighting design).

Two Rooms officially opens May 11 at the Gene Frankel Theatre, located at 24 Bond Street in Manhattan. Tickets, priced $18, are available by calling (212) 868-4444 or by visiting www.SmartTix.com. For further information visit www.RoustTC.com.
