Waiting Room

January 06, 2015 – February 15, 2015


Hope is the thing with feathers – That perches in the soul – And sings the tune without the words – And never stops – At all.

–Emily Dickinson

What are you willing to risk to save a life? A doctor embarks on a ground-breaking medical experiment despite the objections of his colleagues. Meanwhile, a couple are torn about whether the doctor has what it takes to save their baby. This is a play about life in the waiting room of a major children’s hospital. This is a play about medical compassion and risk. This is a play about families who find the will to keep going. This is a play about the needs of the heart and the extremes of medicine. This is a play about breaking the rules. This is a play about hope.
