Diverse City Theater Company is set to present Lee Blessing's Two Rooms, August 9-25 at Theatre Row's The Lion Theatre. Jamie Richards will direct.

In Two Rooms, Michael, an American professor, is being held hostage in a dark room in Beirut while his wife holds a vigil for him in an empty room in their home outside of DC. As events in the Middle East begin to spin out of control, the possibility of bringing Michael safely back home becomes more tenuous.

Playwright Lee Blessing is best known for his play A Walk in the Woods, which was produced on Broadway and the West end and for which he earned a Pulitzer Prize.
