Things are not what they seem for a queer theatre actor when he detects a lingering presence resembling his deepest fears and anxieties.
When Tobin (out disabled actor Daniel Monks) returns to Australia in the lead up to his father’s funeral he must isolate in a hotel room for seven days. Merging this eerily recognisable backdrop with a pinch of the supernatural, In the Room Where He Waits is an intimate, claustrophobic tale of grief and abandonment. This chilling psychological thriller marks an exciting feature debut for up-and-coming Australian director Timothy Despina Marshall, and is not to be missed.
