HOSTAGE – On Stage Now

"Completely Captivates"  "Shattering"  "As Riveting as Live Theater Gets"  "A Definite Must See"

A balanced portrayal of the stunning connection that develops between disparate worlds when a mother, unauthorized and unafraid, travels to Tehran to save her 19 year old son from being held captive by Iranian student revolutionists at the American Embassy.


Beyond Conversation


On 4 November 1979, youthful Islamists, calling themselves Muslim Student Followers of the Imam's Line, invaded the U.S. embassy in Tehran and seized its staff. The 53 hostages were held for 444 days, finally released on Jan. 20, 1981.
