God’s Waiting Room – by Karen Bartholomew
An end of life comedy
Mother is dying slowly, the wait is unbearable, the pressures insurmountable, the thoughts unbelievable. Surely a gesture towards God’s bigger plan is needed? Sisters, Stella and Connie may be different from one another but share a common and profound love for their Mother. Can things really continue as they are?
“If you’re going to see one play about the end of life make it this one, as you will laugh far more than you will cry.” – Rosemary Branch Theatre 2016
What Audiences have been saying…
“A thoroughly thought provoking and entertaining evening. Very well written clearly from the heart. Well worth missing Match of the Day” – (Simon Fisher Becker/Mat Campbell)
“A beautifully balanced and well constructed play, accessibly examining the emotionally explosive topics of death, family relationships and sibling rivalries in a way which made me laugh and cry at the same time. It reminded me of the plays of Mike Leigh where strong characterisation and humour examines everyday elements of our lives in a profound and insightful way.” – (Anwen Griffiths)
“Great show tonight at The Rosemary Branch ‘God’s Waiting Room’ by Karen Bartholomew. Very dark and funny-a great script and acting.” -(Cleo Sylvestre)
