In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play

by Sarah Ruhl

May 14 – June 12, 2011

Synopsis

A comedy about marriage, intimacy and electricity. In the 1880s, a new medical device is developed to treat and pacify “hysterical” women, but it unknowingly produces a very different result. The Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright shares this story of repressed sexuality and physical exploration with equal doses of humor and emotion.
