Waiting Room

written and directed by Enda Walsh
featuring the voice of Aoife Duffin

'I wonder whether I can ever say his name again, and how many others have his name, and how in hearing it being said — his name will close in around me until there is no breath or bones or me. I tease myself with the idea of speaking his name out loud. But I can’t.'

In the quietest part of the early morning, in a nondescript waiting room, a young mother navigates the aftermath of a life ended.

Waiting Room is the sixth in a series of theatre installations by Enda Walsh collectively known as Rooms, which he has made with Paul Fahy, which toured to New York in 2017 and London in 2019.
