‘Phibs Do “Two Rooms”
Amphibian Productions presents a staged reading of Lee Blessing’s play Two Rooms 7pm tonight (Mon Jan 30) at The Modern. Tix are $15. Blessing’s multifaceted drama, about a teacher taken hostage in Beirut and the vigil his wife holds for him in their U.S. home, was written in 1988. But it has been revived repeatedly since 9/11 for its stark observations on Islamist terrorists, manipulative American reporters, and deceitful officials in the U.S. government.
