The two rooms of the title are a windowless cubicle in Beirut, where an American hostage is
being held by Arab terrorists, and a room in his home in the United States, which his wife has
stripped of furniture so that, at least symbolically, she can share his ordeal. In fact the same
room serves for both and is also the locale for imaginary conversations between the hostage
and his wife, plus the setting for the real talks she has with a reporter and a State Department
official. The former, an overly ambitious sort who hopes to develop the situation into a major
personal accomplishment, tries to prod the wife into taking umbrage at what he labels
government ineptitude and inaction, while the State Department representative is coolly
efficient, and even dispassionate, in her attempt to treat the matter with professional
detachment. It is her job to try to make the wife aware of the larger equation, of which the
taking of a hostage is only one element, but as the months inch by it becomes increasingly
difficult to remain patient. The wife is finally goaded by unforeseen developments to speak out
against government policy and, in so doing, triggers the tragic series of events that brings the
play to its startling conclusion.
