About This Event

Join us for a staged reading of this dark feminist comedy about corseting, footbinding, breast implants, and the FDA.  Three women meet in their doctor’s office – a 19th century Englishwoman, an 18th century Chinese woman, and a 20th century woman from New Jersey – and become unlikely friends, as they experience the costs of meeting their culture’s ideals of beauty.  Featuring student designers and actors, The Waiting Room will make you laugh, make you think, and make you think again.

On February 10, stay after the show for a talkback with Communication Studies professors, Dr Kris Morehouse and Dr Heather Crandall, as well as the show’s director, Prof Leslie Stamoolis, and members of our student cast.

Shows will be held on February 10 and 11 at 7:30 pm in Magnuson Theatre, College Hall.
