The Waiting Room

waiting-room-imageThe Waiting Room is a new comedy based around the conversation formed by three strangers who were unlikely to ever meet. It was inspired by the thought-provoking, entertaining and, above all else, pointless conversations people can have together.

Jeremy, a cantankerous and pugnacious failed businessman, is thrown into a room with the lively and fervid Ali and the dim and credulous Mark. Trapped together, the three pass the time with conversations about life, death and the chocolate game.

I trust they had as much fun writing it as I had seeing it on stage.” – Chris Omaweng, London Theatre 1.
