Emma Donoghue's bestselling novel Room where a mother and son have been held trapped in a bunker for seven years, but when time for escape arrives, their biggest challenge is the outside world.
Room on Broadway Background
The world premiere of Room took place in 2017 at Stratford East in the UK. Room also had a run in Ontario and Toronto in Spring 2022.
Room went through extensive development and rewriting for its North American premiere production, which after two years of Covid-related delays came to the Grand Theatre in London Ontario and Mirvish (Princess of Wales Theatre) in Toronto in 2022.
All three productions were well received by audiences and critics alike, despite the elephant in the room.
What’s Room Like?
Ma was kidnapped as a teenage girl and raped by her captor. Seven years later she is still locked inside a purpose built room in her captor's garden, but now with a son.
Her five year old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside and happily exists inside the bunker with the help of Ma's games and his vivid imagination where objects like Rug, Lamp and TV are his only friends.
But for Ma the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside.
Is Room Good for Kids?
The show can be upsetting for adults and is not recommended for children as it contains many disturbing scenes.
