The Waiting Room
by Lisa Loomer
The Auditorium Arena Theatre
Tuesday, January 31st – February 5th, 2006
The Waiting Room is a dark comedy about the timeless quest for beauty and its cost. 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 tightly corseted English woman suffering from what is commonly known as “hysteria.” Then there is Wanda, a modern gal from New Jersey who is having problems with her silicone breasts.
