"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.

Directed by Richard Greenblatt and starring Ari Cohen, Michelle Monteith, Jordan Pettle, Warona Setshwaelo, Jane Spidell, Jenny Young, WAITING ROOM features set and costume design by Kelly Wolf, lighting design by Bonnie Beecher, sound design by Reza Jacobs, and video design by Cameron Davis.

Opens January 14 and runs to February 15, 2014 (previews from January 6) in Tarragon Theatre's Mainspace, 30 Bridgman Avenue, Toronto, M5R 1X3. Tickets can be purchased through Patron Services at 416.531.1827 or by visiting www.tarragontheatre.com. Regular Tickets: $42-$55 (Previews: $23-$27).
