Extraordinary Chambers is written by David Wiener and directed by Pam MacKinnon. The cast includes Greg, Francois Chau, Kimiko Gelman, Marin Hinkle and Mather Zickel. Here's a brief description of what it's actually about:
As the Khmer Rouge once again attracts international attention, this world premiere play gets to the heart of the headlines. When Carter, an American telecom executive, brings his wife Mara on a business trip to Cambodia, he never imagines that the ghosts of this beautiful country will find a way to haunt their lives. As business deals unravel and personal negotiations brim with political consequences, Carter and Mara must decide if the salvation of one life is worth sacrificing the justice of many.
