The Room Where I Was Held

A new play by David Zax
Josh Salazar, a young war correspondent, has just survived a kidnapping abroad, and is recovering at home with his parents. But when Josh's girlfriend pays a visit from Kabul, we learn the truth about why he took on his most dangerous assignment, and at what cost.
