InSide The Area, a Raleigh-based media company that produces stage plays at local churches to help them raise money, is branching out to a larger venue. For the first time, ISTA will present two showings of the thought-provoking, original gospel play “The Waiting Room” at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sept. 19, at the Garner Performing Arts Center, 742 W. Garner Road. Tickets are $25. Discount tickets are available through: http://bit.ly/1VudqzZ. Use the code: JLT.
The storyline centers on five strangers who wake up in the same room – the waiting room to heaven – with no idea where they are or how they got there. They also are unaware they unwittingly shared a specific moment of space and time while living on earth. The strangers realize they are there to await the ultimate judgment and, like many people, they’d ignored a sign or an opportunity to do the right thing while living on earth that would have changed the course of their lives – and the outcome of their journey toward salvation.
