UNCG Theatre presents the dark comedy “The Waiting Room” 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 18th-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a 19th-century tightly corsetted 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. Not appropriate for children due to language and themes.
The play is written by Lisa Loomer and directed by John Gulley.
Performances in Brown Building Theatre are at 8 p.m. Oct. 22, 23, 29, 30; 7:30 pm Oct. 26, 27, 28; 2 p.m. on Oct. 24 and 31.
