Lisa Loomer's 1994 play is a dark comedy about the timeless quest for beauty - and its cost. Three women from different centuries meet in a modern doctor's waiting room. Forgiveness From Heaven is an 18th-century Chinese woman whose bound feet are causing her to lose her toes. Victoria is a 19th-century English woman suffering from what is commonly known as "hysteria." Wanda, a modern gal from New Jersey, is having problems with her silicone breasts. Husbands, doctors, Freud, the drug industry and the FDA all come under examination in this wild ride through medical and sexual politics.
