"The Waiting Room" Plays at Meramec Nov. 16-19

November 07, 2011

The Waiting Room  
"The Waiting Room" runs Nov. 16-19 at the Meramec Theatre.

The Meramec Theatre presents “The Waiting Room” Nov. 16-19 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. in the theatre on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road.

Written by Lisa Loomer, “The Waiting Room” is a dark comedy about the timeless quest for beauty—and its cost.  The play is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, including the politics of the ever-present battle with breast cancer.

Three women from different centuries meet in a modern doctor’s waiting room. Forgiveness from Heaven is an 18th-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a 19th-century, tightly corseted Englishwoman suffering what is commonly known as hysteria.  Wanda is a modern woman from New Jersey who is having problems with her silicone breasts. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the drug industry and the FDA all come under examination. 

“The Waiting Room” is directed by Michelle Rebollo and designed by Rick Willmore. Due to its content, the play is for mature audiences only.

The performances are free. Meramec Theatre no longer takes reservations. Seating is open and on a first-come basis.
