The Waiting Room @ M.E.T at 933 - Black Box
Feb 19 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

A dark, biting comedy about the lengths women have gone to in the name of being attractive to men, from footbinding in China to wearing corsets in Victorian England to modern day boob-jobs in America. Three women find themselves in a hellish waiting room to be treated by a modern doctor. Far from being a one-sided tirade, the play examines the complexity of modern medicine, chasing beauty ideals, and imbalanced male/female relationships. Come for the wicked humor, stay for the extraordinary characters.

When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty’s six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.
