About Is This A Room on Broadway

FINAL WEEKS! MUST END NOVEMBER 27.

Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the thrillingest thrillers ever to hit Broadway,” this Critic’s Pick 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.

“A daring and pulse-prickling” (Variety) theatrical thriller, IS THIS A ROOM stars Emily Davis as Winner in a “sensational, career-making performance” (Deadline).

Don't miss this "scintillating, gut-grabbing 70-minute production" (The Washington Post), on Broadway thru November 27 only.

Reality Winner arrives home one day to find FBI agents waiting at her doorstep. Winner, a former Air Force linguist, is accused of leaking evidence of Russian interference in US elections to news site The Intercept. Is This A Room re-enacts Winner’s interrogation in gripping and unsettling detail, drawing every word directly from the FBI transcript. The result is a powerful and terrifying thriller which explores how personal decisions can shift the global scales.

Is This A Room Broadway performances are taking place after successful runs at The Kitchen and Vineyard Theatre, two New York bastions of exciting and experimental work. Reviewed in The New York Times in 2019, Room was praised as “a taut, extraordinary thriller.”

Emily Davis reprises her lead turn as Reality Winner, also praised by the Times as “one of the most trenchantly observed performances of the year” and “a portrait of almost forensic detail.” Get your Is This A Room Broadway tickets today.

  • Following its first run at the Vineyard from October 3rd to November 24th 2019, Is This A Room returned due to overwhelming demand for a second run in December of that year.
