Compensation: No Pay

Run/Shoot Dates: 02/03/2017 - 02/19/2017
The Waiting Room is a dark comedy with characters ranging in emotion from giddy hysteria to abject despair. The writing is sharp and witty, with a wry sense of indignation at the horrors women have undergone in the name of beauty and trying to be found attractive by men, as well as the failings of modern medical care.
Participation Fees: No
Crew Needed: No
Must be 18 year or older.
Douglas-A surgeon. Over 45. Excellent with bodies, and rather bewildered by the people who inhabit them. An awfully decent man in an impossible situation.
Larry-A vice president of a major drug company. Also on the board of a major cancer center. A big boisterous joker, but an even better businessman.
Ken-A scientist turned bureaucrat. Beat late on the uptake, indecisive and dying to be liked.
Oliver-A Victorian doctor. Decorous and jolly, with a tightly buttoned down dark side. (Please note, this role is involved in a rape scene.)
Blessing From Heaven-An eighteenth-century Chinese businessman. A loving husband, with too many secrets. Sexy. But above all, proud.
Bruce-An African-American gay nurse. Been there, done that.
