“We walk hand-in-hand while the world feels upside down.”
The Waiting Room by Touchstone/Moravian University MFA student Larry Mason is a play that explores Chronic Illness/Disability, its impact on our relationships, and how we view ourselves. This show is designed to examine both the specific brand of anxiety that fills the air in a waiting room and how the world can feel like it turns upside down upon entering the doctor’s office.

[Image description: A cold and desolate doctor’s office waiting room. Two rows of chairs face each other, with one chair in between them facing the camera. Dark silhouettes of people sit in two of the chairs. The one on the right is male presenting, the one on the left female presenting, each with their legs crossed reading a book. In the background we can just barely make out what appears to be a receptionist desk with the dark silhouette of a receptionist seated behind it. On top of all of this are the words “The Waiting Room” printed in a pale yellow.]
