My overall impression

A great premise suited perfectly to a black box theater. The cast is excellent with Belinda Gosbee bringing a believably unhinged take to a woman trying desperately to find the middleground between mourning her husband too soon and maintaining cautious optimism about the ability of indifferent and intangible forces to bring him home. Mario Vernazza’s semi-idealistic and nevertheless self-interested reporter is wonderfully sympathetic, as is Catherine Siggins’ loyal and repressed state department official. And through it all, Chris Devinny delivers a devastating portrait of a man grasping at whatever straws of agency and humanity his situation offers. Wonderfully directed by Amir Korangy, Two Rooms is a real treat of this year’s fringe fest.
