Script Factory: The Waiting Room

  • 90 mins


Roger talks

Roger Goldby's debut as writer/director, The Waiting Room, is a witty, winning debut, with an impressive cast of star names old and new. Anne-Marie Duff, Ralf Little, Rupert Graves, Frank Finlay and Phyllida Law. Of particular interest is its sharp script: devoid of mockney gangsters, gratuitous artsy waffle, or uneven star turns by irrelevant Hollywood superstars, it's the sort of honest, intelligent lifestyle drama that seems oddly difficult to find in the UK market. Roger talks us through The Waiting Room's eventful journey from idea to execution
