Hostage by Michelle Kohlos Brooks
Adobe Rose Theatre Productions is pleased to present "Hostage" a new play by Michelle Kholos Brooks. The time is 1979, the place Tehran, where 40 years ago this fall a group of Iranian college students took over the American Embassy and made hostages of the fifty-two US diplomats and citizens inside. Back in Wisconsin, Barbara Timm boarded a plane and flew to Tehran demanding to see the youngest hostage- her 21 year old son, Kevin. The play is a powerful tribute to the love and nerve of a mother who would not take no for an answer. A show that is all at once tender, funny, tumultuous and riveting - a captivating theatrical experience.
From the playwright:
"In our increasingly polarized society, perhaps there are lessons we can gather from the idealism of an everyday person, a mother, having the courage to stand outside politics out of love for her son"
Michelle Kholos Brooks is a former journalist and producer for public radio programs. Hostage was a finalist for The Woodward/Newman Drama Award, The Fratti Newman Political Play Contest and a National New Play Network showcase finalist. Her play Hitler's Tasters won the Glaspell Award and was featured in this summer's Edinburgh  Fringe Festival.

*** Meet the real hostage Kevin Hermening, his Mom Barbara Timm and playwright Michelle Kholos Brooks at a talkback after the October 20 matinee!
