Previews begin on Saturday and opening night is Sept. 20 for the production of The Room Where I Was Held at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse. The play was written by David Zax and is directed by MJ Bruder Munafo. It runs through Oct. 6 and is the last full-length play of the season at the playhouse.

The story focuses on a freelance journalist who survived a kidnapping in Afghanistan by the Taliban. He is now home recovering when his girlfriend returns from Kabul and, as they say, the plot thickens.
