In The Waiting Room, Priya Banerjee is dead, but her life is far from over. She has just three days left to roam the earth before she can go on to the ‘Waiting Room’ of spirits. As she reluctantly watches and listens to her family, Priya is guided by a droll and increasingly impatient immortal soul in the guise of her Bollywood idol, Dilip Kumar.
Reflecting on her life, she is driven to face unresolved relationships and suppressed events before she finally chooses to intervene.

EnActe ArtsEnActe Arts was founded in 2012 in response to the underrepresentation in theater of South Asians and their respective storytelling. It is an American Contemporary Theater Company that embraces a diverse stakeholder group, casting beyond the South Asian community, and fostering collaboration. EnActe Arts is a talent incubator and a platform for engaging diverse populations in conversations on social issues to create greater awareness and tolerance from a South Asian perspective. Both EnActe’s performance programs and EnActe Academy are rooted in developing talent and creating opportunities for actors, playwrights, and creative and technical production staff at any skill level and of all ages and ethnicities. Participants of EnActe’s professional development experiences have gone on to paid professional positions, including joining the paid staff of theater and non-profit professionals at EnActe Arts.firstname.lastname@example.org San Francisco, CA
