Is This a Room - 2021 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Is This a Room is the astonishingly true story of Reality Winner, the 25-year-old former Air Force linguist who was surprised at her home by the FBI on June 3, 2017. The play’s text is taken from the FBI transcript of her interrogation – and from these pages, Tina Satter has wrought an extraordinary human drama between Reality (Emily Davis) and the agents who question her. In this theatrical thriller, Reality’s life is upended before our eyes, and we’re left questioning American values and the very nature of the truth.

Featured Reviews For Is This a Room


Is This A Room - Time Out NY
s This A Room still has a movingly human presence at its core. Davis gives a performance of heart-wrenching rawness and lucidity; as you watch her dissolve from the inside, what emerges with force is a sympathetic and specific portrait of a young woman trying to do the right thing in a very wrong time. This is a spare show, but Satter doesn't have to add much to the text to keep us fastened in. Reality is interesting enough.

Review | FBI transcript inspires Broadway drama ‘Is This A Room’ - amNY
The FBI transcript is choppy, repetitive, and dull. However, "Is This A Room" (which was conceived and directed by Tina Satter) is primarily concerned with what is not said - theatricalizing the tension, uncertainty, and awkwardness of the interrogation experience through body language. The production also employs hazy lighting, sudden blackouts, overlapping voices, pauses, and a dissonant score and sound design.
