THE WAITING ROOM
By Lisa Loomer

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 eighteeth-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Next is Victoria, a nineteenth-century tightly corseted English woman suffering from what was commonly known as “hysteria.” Lastly, there’s Wanda, a modern woman from New Jersey who’s having problems with her silicone breasts. Everyone from their husbands, to the doctors, Freud, the drug industry, and even the FDA all come under scrutiny. The Waiting Room is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, even the politics of the constant battle with breast cancer.
