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
“This bold and moving play exploring maternal love and the death of an aged relative delivers 'more laughs than tears…. swift turns of humour and sadness” (So&So; Club)
Highly acclaimed play, bringing the subject of death into the open!
A number of successful engagement events were held across Swale and Medway during the Dying Matters Awareness Week in May. As a result of suggestions for opportunities of further engagement throughout the year, Medway CCG has arranged for Motormouse Productions to perform their play ‘God’s Waiting Room’ at The Brook Theatre, Chatham.
God’s Waiting Room tells the story of two estranged sisters, coping with the end of their mother’s life. It has been written to bring the subject of death out into the open, and will be read by professional actors, who will be available to take part in a facilitated discussion on the issues raised by the story. Relevant healthcare and social care professionals will also be available at both performances.
This is a free event open to all and an excellent opportunity to see this highly acclaimed play which helps to stimulate thought and conversation around death and end of life (reviews of the play can be seen below). The play runs for 60 minutes followed by a short interval and discussion on the following dates at The Brook Theatre, Chatham, ME4 4SE
Monday 9th October, 7pm
Monday 16th October, 4pm
Tickets are free but places must be booked in advance at http://www.medwayccg.nhs.uk/godswaitingroom
