A dark comedy about the timeless quest for beauty and its costs. Produced by the Mother Road Theatre Company.

Three women from different centuries meet in a modern doctor’s waiting room. Forgiveness From Heaven, is an eighteenth-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a nineteenth-century tightly corseted Englishwoman suffering what is commonly known as “hysteria.” Then there is Wanda, a modern gal from New Jersey who is having problems with her silicone breasts. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the drug industry, and the FDA all come under examination. The play is a wild ride through medical and sexual politics, including the politics of the ever-present battle with breast cancer.
