By Lee BlessingDirected by Stephen R. Kay

After an American teacher is held hostage in a windowless cubicle in the Middle East, his wife, Lainie, finds herself (and the US Government) powerless to do anything about it. In order to symbolically share his ordeal, she strips a room in their home bare and holds a vigil for him until she can garner enough media attention to strong-arm the State Department into action. As Michael's life hangs precariously in the balance, Lainie must deal with a story-hungry reporter and an emotionally detached bureaucrat while hoping to find a way to reconnect with her husband. Provocative and compelling, this arresting work deals with a subject much in the minds of contemporary society - the taking of innocent hostages by political terrorists.
