Event Description:
Lisa Loomer's darkly funny comedy "The Waiting Room" looks at medical ethics and the dangers encountered on the path to beauty and perceived perfection. Three women from different centuries meet in a modern doctor's waiting room. Forgiveness From Heaven is an eighteenth-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a nineteenth-century corseted Englishwoman suffering from what was known as "hysteria". Then there is Wanda, a modern gal from New Jersey who is having problems with her silicone breasts. Husband, doctors, Freud, the drug industry, and the FDA all come under examination. The play is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, including the politics of the ever-present battle with breast cancer.

Rated PG 13 (Contains adult language and mature themes)
