1988 All Over Again

Don't Worry Be Happy won the Grammy and the Soviets finally withdrew from Afganistan. 1988.

Lee Blessing's play Two Rooms was also staged at Jajolla Playhouse in that year. It is a play about an American hostage in Beirut and his wife who strips down her room back in the states in order to be in solidarity with her captive husband.

At the Charlestown Working Theatre, Two Rooms opens this weekend in a production by Theatre on Fire. And it seems others are seeing a need to revive this play as well, The Vineyard Playhouse in Vineyard Haven, MA will produce Two Rooms in July.
