Mother Road Theatre Company Presents THE WAITING ROOM by Lisa Loomer
Mother Road Theatre Company, Albuquerque's dynamic, professional theatre company located at The Filling Station on historic pre-1937 Route 66, continues its fifth season themed "All the Rage" with the bold, dark comedy, THE WAITING ROOM, by Lisa Loomer and directed by Becca Holmes.
THE STORY: A dark comedy about the timeless quest for beautyand its cost. Three women from different centuries meet in a contemporary 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. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the drug industry and the FDA all come under examination. The play is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, including the politics of the ever-present battle with breast cancer.
The cast features well-known Albuquerque stage veterans, Kristín Hansen, Nicholas Ballas, Kate Costello, Peter Diseth, Bill Sterchi, Angela Littleton, Grace Lapsys, Elliot Stenzel, and Jimmy Ning.
