You are about to witness Reality Winner's last hour of freedom.

IS THIS A ROOM takes place on June 3, 2017 when former Air Force intelligence specialist Reality Winner was surprised at her home by the FBI. Every word, cough, and breath you hear on stage is taken straight from their actual conversation. This theatrical thriller stars EMILY DAVIS as Winner in a performance “of heart-wrenching rawness and lucidity.”

“One of the thrillingest thrillers ever to hit Broadway. Is This A Room is astonishing — and astonishingly emotional — theater.”

Jesse Green, The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“A scintillating, gut-grabbing 70-minute production. Is This A Room casts an irresistible spell.”

Peter Marks, The Washington Post

“Taut, daring and pulse-prickling — a ripped-from-the-headlines tale that pries beneath the ink.”

Naveen Kumar, Variety

These words are brought to life on stage by DEIRDRE O’CONNELL in a “singular, truly mesmerizing performance.”
